auctioning evidence

Least Competent Police: Hey, why don't we raise money by auctioning off some evidence?
Denver police mistakenly send to auction a car that's still crucial in a murder case . . with bloody items still in the car . . and somehow didn't see their mistake even though the car has bullet holes in it. (Bonus: The auction winner outbid the actual guy who got shot in the car and who later offered the auction winner his key to the car for $40.) (Relax. The police got it back, although that "chain of custody" thing is sorta shot.) Denver Post

Can somebody put me on email blast, when they auction off little bundles of organically grown herbs out of the evidence locker.

Many years back my uncle purchased a car at a police auction in Toronto. He took it home with the intention of fixing it and using it as a second family vehicle. He pulled out the back seat and tossed it aside. It was my aunt who pointed out there was 'something' taped underneath the seat. When he took a closer look, it was a tightly packed bag of happy herb. He called the police and started laying into them about selling him a car with stuff he did not want. A police officer arrived the NEXT day, not the SAME day, and took the bag away. I was very young at the time. However, I sometimes miss that bag, um, car! I miss the car, not the bag!
