You can get huge discounts on recovered items at the VPD Auction this Saturday


From a dental X-ray machine to a 1984 Canadian $100 22-karat gold coin, the annual Vancouver Police Recovered Goods Auction never fails to wow attendees.

This year’s offerings include a, “large selection of anything a thief can steal.” In fact, there’s even a stainless steel double kitchen sink up for grabs in the 2019 auction.

In addition, this year’s round-up includes over 300 bikes that include brands such as Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Santa Cruz and Giant. Racing, mountain, road, hybrid, cruise and BMX bikes are all up for grabs, and there’s even a vintage penny farthing bike (decorative, not rideable).

There will also be a large selection of gold available, including one 14-karat white gold diamond-set dress ring with a total diamond weight of 2.50 karats valued at $4,900. There are also a number of collector coins, including a 1984 Canadian $100 22-karat gold coin, as well as miscellaneous bank notes. There is also a stamp collection and assortment of hockey cards up for auction.

Of course, there will also be a selection of high-end, men’s and women’s designer clothing, shoes and purses. Other items include: children’s toys; comic books; artwork; and musical equipment, including a Les Paul Limited Edition custom electric guitar.

Tools and electronics continue to be popular targets for thieves with wrenches, saws, headphones, Bluetooth speakers, cameras and TVs all represented. Outdoor enthusiasts will find a wide array of camping and fishing gear, ski and snowboard equipment and other sporting goods.

This auction is composed of goods recovered by the VPD that have gone unclaimed for the past six months. Many of these items will be auctioned off for a fraction of their original value.
