Canadian feds holding $281M seized goods
by UPI

OTTAWA -- The federal Canadian agency that maintains goods seized by police during arrests has more than $281 million worth of goods and the value is growing.

Sun Media in Ottawa used the Access to Information law to peruse the 800-page list of inventory under management by the Seized Property Management Directorate.

The list shows the government is holding eight Hummer H2s, almost all of them black; Dodge Vipers; Porsches; BMWs; and a 2005 Mercedes-Benz SL55 convertible the agency valued at $134,000. There are also all-terrain vehicles, Ski-Doos, Sea-Doos, speedboats, airplanes and a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter valued at more than $300,000, Sun Media said.

The inventory also lists jewelry, two tanning beds, arsenals of weapons, drug-growing hydroponic equipment, leather sofas, guitars and currencies from 36 countries.

Agency officials told the news company the inventory and total value are on the rise as police are making arrests faster than the courts can conduct trials.
