The online sale of surplus Huntington County property has so far netted the county $3,672.48.

Todd Nightenhelser, owner of The Collector's Box in Huntington,, is conducting the sale of surplus and unwanted county items through his already established eBay account.

A wide variety of items were purchased - items which were once owned by the Huntington County Waste Management, Huntington County Sheriff's Department and Huntington County Commissioner's Office.

Items purchased from waste management included gravity and hydraulic refuse trailers.

Uncirculated coins, a gold wedding band and U.S. mint coins were sold on behalf of the sheriff's department.

The commissioner's office items included a desk chair, straitjacket, file cabinet, utility table and air purifier.

The county received $3,672.48, which reflects the first net payment.
