Swedish police put seized drug house up for sale on auction site

OSTRASK, Sweden, July 26 (UPI) -- Swedish police are attempting to sell a house seized in a drug raid on Blocket, the country's version of auction site eBay.

A district court ruled police became the owners of the five-bedroom Ostrask property when it was seized by authorities during an investigation that discovered marijuana plants were being cultivated and sold in the home, Swedish news agency TT/The Local.se reported Friday.

Police said there has been little interest in the house thus far.

The Blocket listing makes no mention of the home's previous owners or their extra-legal activities.

"The property should be carefully examined before a purchase is carried out. Come to the opening if you are considering buying," the listing reads.

Police lawyer Erik Lindstrom told the Folkbladet newspaper he was surprised by the decision to list the seized house online.

"I've never heard of anything like it," he said.
