I've once again become fascinated with Stealitback.com, a website that auctions off goods seized in police raids.
More so than ebay, you get a real sense of people's lives through this thing. The products range from the strange (five books in german) to the heartbreaking (a wide selection of strollers) to the blatantly criminal (yes, they do indeed have a crowbar up for auction).
The best part is the wide variety of items that are obviously for criminal intent. Lots of gun cases, knives, swords (!), and tons and tons of grow lights.
Pot growers, please. If you're going to buy a growlight, don't buy it DIRECTLY FROM THE POLICE AUCTION. Sometimes it pays to be paranoid, guys.
