Harrison County to auction off equipment it tried to return

Harrison County keeps trying to return some valuable office equipment, but the company that owns it has failed to collect.

County Attorney Tim Holleman tells The Sun Herald Sheriff Troy Peterson will auction off 114 copiers, printers and faxes that Ricoh USA Inc. failed to pick up, despite repeated requests.

He says the county’s lease for the office equipment had expired when the county went with a different vendor and notified Ricoh in April 2013 to pick up its stuff. Nobody came. Copiers sat in the courthouse hallway and various offices.

Holleman said they were in the way and Ricoh was notified more than once to pick them up.

Ricoh’s loss could be the county’s gain. Holleman says most of the equipment worked fine when it was last used.
