The St. Albans Police Department doesn't have enough space to store all of the property and evidence it has collected over the years.
Behind the police station, there's a small shed packed to the brim with items that were abandoned, seized as evidence or never claimed by their owners.
To make some room, the department has donated 19 bicycles to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Charleston.
Capt. James Agee said some of the bikes, which range from colorful children's bikes to name brand mountain bikes, had been in the department's possession for more than 10 years.
"Most of the ones, we just found them on the street and nobody ever comes and claims them," he said. "Abandoned bike, found bike -- they're just clutter that no one ever came for."
Agee said he was happy to see the bicycles going to the ReStore, which sells gently used, donated items to the public at a sizable discount.
"We could have kept them forever," he said. "At some point we would have to turn them over to the state and they'd auction them off. We'd rather give to a charitable organization."
Even if the bikes were turned over to the state, Agee said there's no room for them there.
"The state says, 'We ain't got anywhere to put them either,'" he said. "And we want to be able to get rid of it too. It's not like this building is going to any bigger. The state's not going to build us a bigger building anytime soon."
Courtney Crabtree, ReStore's donations manager, said the bikes would be inspected for quality and condition and priced accordingly.
"They'll take a look at them and we try to have our prices about 50 percent of retail," she said.
Crabtree said the ReStore doesn't just accept bicycles; they take just about anything.
"We accept donated housing materials, furniture and home goods," she said. "We sell them to the community and use that money to build more Habitat for Humanity homes."
