Police auction goods at Property Room

Find everything from unique items to high-end items, including diamond jewelery, all at a steal. And the best part is you can do it without ever leaving your home. And here's another interesting aspect - all the items for sale are being sold by police departments around the country. They're selling off items retrieved from burglaries, credit card fraud and other crimes. And they're giving you a chance to get in on the deals.

The deals are found on the Web site PropertyRoom.com and the items sold online are stored around the country in warehouses. And among the biggest sellers is bicycles.

Many of these items have been recovered from crimes and, for a variety of reasons, never made it back to the rightful owner. So police departments can sell the items to make money for the local community, or they can have the Property Room can do the selling for them.

Property Room founder Tom Lane is a former Long Island detective, and when he started the business 10 years ago, he had 28 police departments on board. Now, he's up to 1,800.

So while you'll never know the story behind the items available, you can still own them. Everything is sold through auctions, including jewelry.
