Sneakers Seized by New York Police are Being Auctioned Off
As reported by the New York Daily News, the sneakers have been in police possession since 2017. Authorities reportedly executed four search warrants into the home of Richard Figueroa, 46, and his wife Joann, 51, who allegedly sold cocaine from their residence and an auto repair shop. Aside from the various forms of narcotics found in the raid, the police also stumbled across a huge sneaker collection. We guess we know where the money was going…
The New York Office of General Services has now listed many of the sneakers on eBay, most of which appear to be DS. While there isn’t any uber-rare heat among the batch, there are some highlights, including ‘Bred’ and ‘Fire Red’ Air Jordan 4s, the Air Jordan 11 ‘Space Jam’, the Nike LeBron 11 Elite ‘Hero’, the Air Jordan 6/7 Retro ‘Golden Moments Pack’, and the Air Jordan 29/11 ‘Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack’. Interestingly, most of the listed pairs are already receiving bids much higher than their standard re-sell value.
