With a few exceptions, most unclaimed evidence is either destroyed, used by this agency or sold at public
Any item that is illegal by its very nature (certain weapons, drugs and drug papraphernalia), is in very
poor condition or has any personal information is disposed of in accordance with Idaho State Code.
Any items that can be used by this agency in our efforts to combat crime are seized and put to
good use. This saves our Department and, by extension, the City tax-payer's money.
When we accumulate enough unclaimed property or evidence, we turn it over to
Prime Time Auctions
for sale to the public. A calendar of upcoming auctions can be found on their
web site. Proceeds from the auction go into a fund used to train officers and
other employees. Firearms are auctioned to licensed gun dealers per Idaho State Code.
Note: Unclaimed property and evidence is legally abandoned after six months. If you have questions,
contact the Evidence Division.
