The City of Astoria has a wide variety of surplus and unclaimed property each year, including office equipment, bicycles and unclaimed property. The City contracts with an online auction website that provides online auction services for hundreds of Police and Sheriff Departments throughout the U.S. for the disposal of surplus and unclaimed property. GovDeals.com is open to the public and you may bid on any item listed.
In addition, GovDeals.com has established StealitBack.com, the nation's only public national registry of stolen goods. Private citizens are invited to register on StealitBack.com any items with serial numbers they have lost or reported stolen to their local police department. StealitBack.com will search its database, and if an item has been received from a participating department, will return the item to the police department where the theft or loss was originally reported so that it may be returned to its rightful owner free of charge.
