Are you shopping for a vehicle? Make sure to check out copart.com. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice put up 23 cars and one motorcycle to be auctioned off to the highest bidder on Jan. 8. 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.
Pre-inspection and pre-bidding of the vehicles is available now.
“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.
