Roll up for cop shop auction

NORTHERN Rivers residents came from far and wide for the first Lismore Police Station auction in four years.

More than 100 people eagerly crowded around auctioneer Kevin Cocciola on Friday while many tried to snag a bargain.

The items for sale included two motorbikes, 60 bicycles, jewellery, a guitar, a surfboard, a fully enclosed trailer and a whipper-snipper.

"A lot of the jewellery sold very well and made quite a few thousand dollars overall," Mr Cocciola said.

"One of the pushbikes got up to $160 and most of them sold for about $50 or $60.

"It was a big crowd of people and everything sold very strongly."

Several attendees expressed interest in a Kawasaki motor-bike which sold for a whopping $2100.

Jane Berg, her husband and three children decided to cut their two-week Evans Head holiday short to attend the auction.

"We came straight here from camping," the Whian Whian resident said.

"We want to get some bikes for our boys. Our oldest is looking for a bike with gears and the second oldest is just learning to ride, so hopefully there's something just right for him.

"They've even brought their pocket money to put towards a bike."

Most of the items sold on Friday had been handed in to police as lost property and were never claimed.

Inspector Mick Dempsey said the auction would make much-needed space in the police station's store room.

"We'll probably make the auction quite regular," he said.

Money raised from the auction will go to the NSW Government.
