SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT TO AUCTION SEIZED VEHICLES ON FEB. 10

The Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department will auction 55 seized vehicles at the Southern New Mexico State Fairgrounds on Saturday, Feb. 10.

All of the vehicles were seized following narcotic stops. Some of the vehicles have titles, but others will require the buyers to follow a process through the New Mexico Department of Motor Vehicles to obtain titles and registration documents. Three of the vehicles can only be legally operated in the Republic of Mexico.

Buyers of vehicles lacking titles will be given a bill of sale, along with paperwork issued by the auctioneer. Buyers will be responsible for obtaining surety bonds from the Department of Motor Vehicles for each untitled vehicle. The cost for this process is generally less than $100.

Charles F. Dickerson, Inc., International Auctioneers will conduct the auction. Registration begins Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2007, at 7 a.m. as part of the annual five-day Construction Equipment, Farm Machinery and Vehicle Auction, of which the seized vehicles are one component. Bidding on the seized vehicles begins at 9 a.m. Feb 10, 2007 and will continue until all the vehicles are sold. None of the vehicles carries a warranty. All will be sold on an as-is basis. Questions about the auction process must be directed to Dickerson's offices at (505) 526-1106.

A $500 refundable deposit is required in advance of the auction. Business checks, personal checks and cash will be accepted for deposits and vehicle purchases, with the $500 deposit credited to the purchase(s). Credit cards are not accepted.

The vehicles will be available for inspection at the fairgrounds beginning Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2007.
Auction proceeds will go toward ongoing drug-enforcement efforts by the Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department.
