FITZGERALD, GA (WALB) –Are you in the market for a new car or how about a new jet ski?

You can pick up some good used items in Ben Hill County this weekend, that were seized from drug dealers.

This weekend vehicles and other items seized in drug deals will be auctioned off the Sheriff's Auction.

The Sheriff says this year there is a great selection of newer model cars, some rather unique vehicles and even a jet ski and a lap top.

The money will help buy new equipment for the Sheriff's Office, which is very much needed.

"Our counties are always short on money any of the local governments with the economy like it is we buy all of our equipment from drug seized vehicles," said Sheriff Bobby McLemore.

The auction will be held at the Ben Hill County court house on Saturday starting at 10am.
