i mean in order for it to be used as evidence or kept as evidence youd have to know who it belongs to.

It say "unclaimed" property which means they can't find the rightful owners or they've given them plenty of time to retrieve their property which they did not do. I see nothing wrong with auctioning those items. There are far more important things to whine about. I am by no means the biggest fan of law enforcement but if they are trying to get rid of "evidence" then I'm sure someone has already been convicted of the crime associated with that item or it has no importance in the case anyhow.
