Destruction of Unclaimed Property
The Albuquerque Police Department intends to dispose of a number of items acquired during its regular course of business.
The legal owners of these items are either unknown or have failed to respond to all attempts to contact them.
Contraband, deadly weapons, firearms, ammo, and hazardous materials are destroyed. Property valued at $50 or more is auctioned and the money is placed in the general fund. Some property, including contraband, may be used for government purposes.
