Cortland Police Department to Sell Impounded Vehicles


Vehicles that have been towed and impounded by Cortland Police for violations of either vehicle and traffic law or penal law in the state, look to be sold off.

The Cortland Police Department charges a daily impound fee for vehicles that are on the lot. Vehicles though are commonly abandoned through State Law as owners do not want to pay the impound fees that have accumulated.

This round will be 13 vehicles sold off by Cortland Police, some considered in good condition and with the vehicle key. Money raised by the sale will return to the police department budget and for future purchases of equipment and police vehicles.

A list of the vehicles and their condition can be seen below:

  • 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, with keys, bad condition
  • 2003 Subaru Outback, with keys, smashed windows
