When the Timmins Police Service holds its annual auction on Saturday, June 11th, the usual fare of bicycles and other accumulated stuff will be on the block.
But this year, says communications coordinator Marc Depatie, there’s an item that’s unusual to the event.
“This is a one-carat Canadian solitaire diamond ring, white gold band, size 5,” he explains. “So if there’s any frugal would-be Romeos out there looking to pop the question, they might be able to score this ring at a significant discount.”
Between now and then, if you can prove that it’s rightfully yours, Depatie says there’s still time to get it back.
“In the absence of that,” he says, “we’re going to act in good faith here and dispose of property that has been in our possession for over 90 days and we are now legally allowed to dispose of this property by means of an auction.”
Viewing begins at eight o’clock the morning of the auction, then the bidding begins at 8:30.
