So here's the deal.

The alleged bad guys (and well, maybe the alleged bad girls too...) are like Santa. They are...allegedly...everywhere.

Allegedly...

And there are times that they are unable to outrun the long arm of the law and they get their stuff confiscated...

I'm guessing that this is what happens because that's what I've seen on TV...

Anyway, there is a sale coming up of the confiscated stuff from the alleged bad guys and girls. And here's what you need to know from the press release from the State of Michigan Surplus Store. It looks like you can get some sweet stuff for not a lot of cash.
