Mmmmmm, Confiscated Booze ...

Posted By on Thu, Jul 19, 2012 at 11:00 AM

Fans of bulk liquor at rock bottom prices, clear your schedule for Aug. 1 and make sure there's enough gas in the pickup to get to Oro Valley.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department's Civil Enforcement Division is holding an auction at a storage facility at 8710 N. Oracle Road where it will be selling off, among other things, a bunch of "assorted liquor, wine and spirits" that were confiscated from a now defunct liquor store near Oracle and Orange Grove. Bidding starts at 10 a.m.

The auction announcement says that six "lots" of booze will be up for auction, along with some furniture, computer equipment and shelving. The items are what's left of the Beverage Corner, which has been sued in Pima County Superior Court by its creditors, thus prompting the need to auction off the items.

The Sheriff's Office often conducts such auctions of seized or confiscated material, sometimes including vehicles, homes or vacant land, though most times it's the result of a court order from a civil action and now from a criminal case, said Jerry Sanchez, office supervisor for the Civil Enforcement Unit.

So, if you were hoping this lot was going to include a lot of Cristal or other stereotypical drug- or gang-related adult beverages, sorry. Though there's a good chance it'll include some Boone's Farm.
