LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — More than 800 items will be auctioned off this Saturday during the second Clark County auction of the year.

Saturday’s sale starts at 8 a.m. and features about 304 vehicles and 580 lots of miscellaneous items used or acquired by area police departments, local cities, the state of Nevada, Clark County School District and other government agencies.

Popular items to be sold include furniture, computers, bicycles, electronics and unclaimed property from McCarran International Airport’s Lost and Found division.

Saturday’s auction has 16 hybrid SUVs for sale (mostly Ford Escapes) and 28 hybrid sedans including Hondas, Toyotas, and Chevys.


Most of the hybrids have 50,000 to 100,000 miles on them. Additionally, the Public Administrator is selling a 1960 Thunderbird and 1976 Chevy Step side pickup, and a 2008 Saturn Sky Turbo as part of some estate sales it is managing.

The Thunderbird and pickup don’t run. All the vehicles sold at the auction are purchased in as-is condition.

“Vehicles, in particular, tend to be very popular items at our auctions,” said David Johnson, manager of Clark County’s Automotive Division, which oversees the sales. “If you visit the lot during the preview period you can sit in the vehicles, and you can start them up.”

The preview and pre-registration period for the spring government surplus auction is Wednesday, May 8, through Friday, May 10, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on-site at the same location as Saturday’s auction, 4320 Stephanie Street, off East Flamingo Road near Dog Fancier’s Park.
