BATON ROUGE- The city is auctioning off surplus property and other merchandise, including a ring taken after an employee was arrested and accused of selling drugs from the evidence locker two years ago.
The 2.50 ct ring is worth more than $25,000 court records show. As of Friday night, bidders were willing to pay $3,600 for it.
The ring and other jewelery along with vehicles and office supplies are being sold online. The deadline to submit a bid is the end of the month.
