The vehicles were seized by police and forfeited by convicted felons through the efforts of DA Rice’s office.

The auction includes a number of makes and models, including a 1999 Harley-Davidson Custom, 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, 2004 Nissan XTERRA XE, 2003 Honda Accord LX, 1999 Nissan Pathfinder, 1998 Lincoln Navigator and 2002 Ford Econoline van.

“These auctions are a win-win for Long Islanders – they put money back into crime reduction efforts that keep our communities safe while also offering an affordable way to buy a car,” said DA Rice.

Proceeds from the auction will go to both the state and county to be used to pay restitution to victims as well as fund anti-drug efforts and crime-reduction programs in local communities.

The auctioned vehicles were forfeited by defendants who were convicted of felony crimes, including driving while intoxicated, drug sales, drug possession, aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, grand larceny, reckless endangerment, cigarette tax fraud, and robbery.
