It is always a crapshoot to buy a house at auction, especially when it comes to a police auction.
- Thanks to seizure laws, the cops can impound anything that was bought with drug currency, plus then once a year they auction off all the stuff plus keep the currencyâ€¦ Police auctions often have jewelry, cars, boats, motorcycles, plus furs, plus once in a while they even sell houses or property.
I bought an amazing beachside home at a police auction, the former residence of a drug dealer, plus let myself and others tell you it came with a few surprises, and first of all, I found a handgun in the HVAC duct of the main family room. I was cleaning the air vent plus saw something just inside the HVAC duct, so I took a closer look plus found a gun! I pondered what to do, because it might be evidence of a crime, however on the other hand I didn’t want cops poking through our house plus looking in our HVAC duct. I just don’t trust cops, even if I do love their auctions, but since the central Heating plus Air Conditioning plan was in superb shape plus didn’t need to be repaired, I decided that for the time being I would leave well enough alone. I left the gun in the air vent, put the grate back over it, plus just went about our supplier appreciate it wasn’t there. In the future, maybe I will figure out what to do with the gun, however for now I don’t see the harm in letting it stand in the air vent for a few months, or maybe a few years.
