MARINA, Calif. - A Central California storage locker held a surprise for its buyers - thousands of dollars' worth of police equipment that may have been stolen.
The Monterey Herald says contents of the locker in Marina were auctioned earlier this month to cover unpaid rent.
Two Carmel Valley men bought the contents for $825, but when they opened it on Saturday, they found about 80 police and firefighter outfits, two badges, keys, radio equipment, sirens, lights, police reports and photographs, handcuffs, mace, batons and urine-test kits.
Police used two trucks to haul it away Thursday.
The items were from several law enforcement and fire agencies. Marina Police Chief Eddie Rodriguez says the locker was rented by a former police employee who was fired four or five years ago.
