Some strange stuff on the block at VPD auction coming to Surrey

The Vancouver Police hope to unload stolen goods seized during investigations over the past six months

They’ve got everything – even a penny farthing bike, not to mention a kitchen sink – up for grabs at this year’s Vancouver Police Department Recovered Goods Auction in Surrey.

Able Auctions, at 13557 77th Ave. in Newton, hosts the annual event and this year’s auction will be on Saturday May 4, starting at 9 a.m. Public previews will be held Thursday and Friday, between noon and 6 p.m.

The Vancouver Police hope to unload all sorts of stolen goods that were seized during investigations over the past six months but have ended up here because police were unable to locate their rightful owner.

Is your stolen bike here?

Check out this video on all the bicycles available at this year’s auction:

They’ve got about 300 bicycles this year, including brands like Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Santa Cruz, and Giant. Among them are racing bikes, mountain bikes, hybrid, cruise and BMX bikes.

In the meantime, need some metal legs?

They’ve got a pair for sale this year.
