ATHENS, AL (WAFF) -

The Limestone County Sheriff's Office raised money on Saturday to help fight crime.

Deputies held an auction Saturday morning, and items ranged from TV sets and bicycles to such high-end items as mobile homes and vehicles. Some of the vehicles were used police cars, old county trucks and cars, but much of the property was seized from drug dealers.

The proceeds raised from this auction will go to the Sheriff's Office and the District Attorney's Office. Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely said, "It's something that helps supplement our budget. Over the past several years, it's been quite a bit of money we've been able to accumulate that goes into our budget."

The Sheriff's Office usually has one of these auctions every six to eight months.
