ST. CHARLES COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

The St. Charles County Police Department is raising money in a unique way by taking stolen items and using them for good.

Officers said the items are from various court cases that have already been resolved. They wait for the owners to claim the items and if they don’t, those items end up in the auction.

Police said the money raised from the auction will go into the St. Charles County general fund – not the police department.

Officials said all items are usually auctioned off by the end of the event. And those items that aren’t auctioned off are given away or disposed of.
