Each year the Wheaton Police Department sends surplus, found, unclaimed and forfeited property and evidence to an online auction called Propertyroom.com for disposal. When property remains unclaimed or the owner is unknown, it is sold at auction to the highest bidder pursuant to Section 2-506 of the Wheaton City Code.
Propertyroom.com will accept Paypal, Master Card, Visa and American Express. After Nov. 1, 2013 interested persons may view the items, submit bids and register for free on www.propertyroom.com or at www.propertyroom.com/d/662 for items submitted by the city of Wheaton. If additional information is needed, answers to frequently asked questions can be found at www.propertyroom.com/help/faq, which is on the main auction website.
