The Cottage Grove Police Department makes every effort to return found, safekeeping and evidentiary property to the rightful owner when it is no longer needed. Unclaimed property is sold at auction. For information about how to participate in viewing and bidding, check out PropertyRoom.com.
When the Police Department has forfeited items such as cars, trucks, motorcycles and boats, they are sent to either South East Auction or CrankyApe to be sold.
