Deputies say they plan to liquidate all cars, SUV's, lawnmowers and ATV's it's confiscated over the past decade.

Money made will be returned to the county and used to buy new equipment for drug agents.

Deputies say most of the vehicles came from drug trafficking.

"Most of 'em are seized vehicles and of course they're from all over the United States that's come through and we've stopped and seized drug paraphernalia out of the car," said Lowndes County Sheriff Chris Prine.

The auction will be held Saturday on the lawn of the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office at 10 a.m.

    Right, take from the poor and give to the rich is reversed. Last time I looked it was the "poor" that were doing all the taking and the "rich" all the giving. And before you swallow too much malarkey from Obama about the "poor" take a look at the Fed's definition of "poor" and what some who fall within that definition own. Things like three bedroom houses, cars, color television sets, and so forth. I'm sick of hearing about the poor "poor" and even sicker of seeing those who game the system who won't work taking from those of us who do.

    "take from the poor give to the rich."? More like take from the drug dealing trash that has more money then brains and let the average guy buy something he could never afford otherwise.

    Take from the Poor? Yeah the law breaking drug dealer driving a car bought with drug money from Poor addicts. I doubt you are really a cop, let alone an honest cop.
