Kingston Police have announced the date of their upcoming fall auction, a much anticipated annual event.

“Found or seized property will be up for grabs to the highest bidder,” Kingston Police said in a press release dated Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2023.

“As in previous years, there will be a large number of bicycles being auctioned off, as well as jewelry, tools, household goods, and currency.”

The event will take place on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023, in the Sail Room of Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, located at 53 Yonge Street. Doors will open at 8 a.m., with the auction starting at 10 a.m.

More information and pictures regarding the items that will be available at the auction will be posted on Brad Snider’s website,, in the coming days, police noted.

In 2018, Kingstonist sat down for an interview with Kingston Police to find out more about where the items available in a police auction come from, and if any of the numerous bicycles consistantly on the auction block at each of the two annual auctions are, in fact, stolen bikes (spoiler alert: many are).
