Hundreds of people showed up at this auction Saturday in Nacogdoches, hoping to be the highest bidder on everything from a truck to a tool box for the truck and even a washing machine. Travis Drewry came to replace his old truck he lost in a wreck. The bidding was very competitive,but Drewry didn't walk away empty handed. "I bought two pickups a Dodge pickup and a Ford pickup", says Travis.
This wasn't just any auction, but an auction to sell items from a closing East Texas Narcotics Trafficking Task Force. "We are trying to liquidate many of the task force assets. All the money we generate from this sale will be divided into a bank account to be equally divided among the agencies pending approval from the governor's office", says Nacogdoches County Sheriff Thomas Kerss.
