Event Details

The annual Vancouver Police Department (VPD) recovered goods auction kicks off Saturday, May 4 at nine a.m. sharp and is sure to draw a crowd. The 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.

A public preview of all goods will be held Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3 from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The previews and auction take place at the Able Auctions warehouse – 13557 77th Avenue in Surrey.

The auction is known for its assortment of bikes and this year is no different, with over 300 lots – featured brands include Trek, Specialized, Cannondale, Santa Cruz and Giant. Racing, mountain, road, hybrid, cruise and BMX bikes are all up for grabs. There’s even a vintage penny farthing bike (decorative, not rideable). 

Jewelry is popular - with over 120 recovered pieces on the block this year. There is a large selection of gold, including one 14-karat white gold diamond-set dress ring with a total diamond weight of 2.50 karats valued at $4,900. Other pieces include carved jade and natural blue sapphire pendants, a natural emerald and diamond-set tennis bracelet and a strand of Japanese Akoya cultured pearls. 

Collectors will enjoy the variety of collector coins (including a 1984 Canadian $100 22-karat gold coin) and miscellaneous bank notes; there is also a stamp collection, comic books and assortment of hockey cards up for auction.

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.

Other items to look out for include: men’s and women’s designer clothing, shoes and purses; children’s toys; artwork; and musical equipment, including a Les Paul Limited Edition custom electric guitar. If a bag of underwear and socks is up your alley, you are in luck.
