Drug seizure cars shown off before auction

May 2, 2003

Albany -- If you are looking for a good used car, like a Lincoln Towncar or a 1969 souped up Camaro, the Albany Dougherty Drug Unit says can hook you up.

Forty-seven cars seized in drug busts are being auctioned. You can see some of them parked out front of the Drug Unit office on Westgate.

Drug Unit Commander Bill Berry said "We're hoping it will draw some interest, and come down. Because we have 47, and we're putting out 5 or 6 and rotating them around just to show these are seized cars and you might can get a good deal."

The cars and trucks will be auctioned May 17th at the field between the City Shop and the National Guard Armory on North Monroe Street.
