Unclaimed Property



The Doña Ana County Sheriff's Department collects evidence and seizes goods in the pursuit of criminal investigations. In some cases, recovered property is not claimed by the rightful owners or is forfeited by convicted criminals. In both cases, Doña Ana County uses PropertyRoom.Com to assist with property liquidation. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each item obtained locally comes back to Doña Ana County and is dedicated to law-enforcement enhancement.
