The New York State Office of General Services has added a 2013 Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG and a 2012 Audi A7 Prestige Quattro to the list of items the public can bid on at a surplus vehicle, highway equipment, and miscellaneous property auction scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, December 1 at the Harriman State Office Building Campus in Albany. Items being sold will be available for inspection starting at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the auction.

The Mercedes, with approximately 721 miles on its odometer, and the Audi, with approximately 14,426 miles on it, were seized by the Attorney General’s Office in 2013 following an investigation into a $3.2 million Medicaid fraud case in Brooklyn. Proceeds from the sale of the two cars will be transferred to the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Unit.

This isn’t the first time OGS has sold seized items. In the summer of 2014, several pieces of men’s jewelry, including a Rolex watch, were sold on the NYSStore.com eBay site after they were confiscated from a suspected drug trafficker on Staten Island. Later that year, a 1971 Camaro that was reported stolen in 1976 and was seized by New York Statewas among vehicles sold at a state surplus vehicle auction in Poughkeepsie.
