Almost all items auctioned off at seized and surplus sale

Bidders snatched up items ranging from cars to office furniture at an auction of seized and surplus items.

Amy Connell, who worked the auction Saturday, said the turnout was excellent and almost all items were sold.

The auction, held at L.W. Benton Co. auction facility in Jones County, began at 10 a.m. and was finished by mid-afternoon.

The items up for auction were provided by the city of Macon and agencies including drug task force offices.

Connell said L.W. Benton Co. holds a Saturday auction once a quarter.
