Wyo. evidence gnomes set for auction
These gnomes are looking for good homes.
Office supplies, computers, tools, even vehicles -- people can buy all sorts of things at the annual Gillette, Wyo., city auction.
Those things aren't nearly as peculiar as the dozens of lawn gnomes sitting in the evidence room at the Police Department.
The city plans to offer the 143 gnomes at its auction Thursday.
The Gillette News-Record reports Gillette police recovered dozens of gnomes stolen from yards around northeast Wyoming in May. Two teenage girls are the alleged culprits.
Some people have claimed their gnomes. Those not picked up are considered lost and found property.
