Preventing crime, protecting the public and helping those in need
Every year, thousands of items are seized by police as they investigate offences such as burglary, theft and fraud.
Despite extensive enquires, officers are sometimes unable to identify the property's rightful owners.
In these circumstances, police forces can sell the items and plough the money raised back into community initiatives.
Dudley-based auctioneers, Aston's, currently sell these items on behalf of West Midlands Police.
The company regularly host sales of electrical items, household goods, tools, gardening equipment, bikes and more.
The date of these sales can be found on the company's website.
For more information, please contact Aston's on 01384 212 555 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
