BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A state vehicle auction on Saturday helped to make a dent in Louisiana's growing deficit problem.

More than $800,000 has been raised from Louisiana state vehicle auctions since April. More than 200 vehicles, ranging from 1981 to 2012 models were included in Saturday's event.

The vehicles auctioned off were not used often, made obsolete, or outlived their usefulness to state departments.

Hundreds of cars and trucks have been sold at events like these throughout the state.
