Police in Ohio auctioning seized Bentley

CLEVELAND (AP) — Car enthusiasts have a chance to bid for a luxury Bentley at a police auction of abandoned and seized vehicles in northeast Ohio.

Cleveland police are auctioning off 57 vehicles Saturday including a 2005 Bentley 2-door Continental GT model driven just over 4,900 miles.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/Nf2vfi) reports that bidding will start at $55,000 and that a similar model Bentley would sell for about $140,000.

Police say the Bentley was seized during a narcotics investigation.

The auction at a police impound lot starts at 9 a.m.

Money from the sale of seized vehicles goes into the Law Enforcement Trust Fund to purchase body armor and computers for police patrol cars among other items. Money made from abandoned vehicle sales will go into the general fund.
