Proceeds from U.S. Marshals’ auctions are used to compensate victims of
crime and fund law enforcement initiatives. In addition, the funds are often
shared with state and local law enforcement agencies that participated in
the investigations leading to the forfeiture of the assets. “This important
program enhances law enforcement cooperation between state, local and
federal agencies, as well as strips criminals of their ill-gotten gains,”
said New Mexico’s U.S. Marshal, Conrad Candelaria. The items auctioned once
belonged to individuals and companies involved in criminal activity. A court
of law has ordered these particular assets to be forfeited as ill-gotten
The U.S. Marshals Service is the primary custodian of seized and forfeited
property for the Department of Justice’s Asset Forfeiture Program. More than
8,400 items of forfeited property are sold annually with gross sales in
excess of $100 million.
