U.S. Marshals Auction off a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder
Albuquerque, NM - On November 7, 2016 the United States Marshals Service in Albuquerque, New Mexico auctioned off a rare vehicle. The vehicle was seized by local and federal agencies and the proceeds will help support law enforcement activities in the Albuquerque area.

The highlight of the auction was the sale of a forfeited 2008 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, with the vehicle being sold for a high bid amount of $95,200.00.

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 gains.
