LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – UPDATE: Capt. Todd Kocian said Thursday evening that there is an auction going on at the Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel this weekend.

But Kocian is unsure of what items are being sold at the auction on Saturday.


Lincoln Police are notifying the community that auction signs which have been posted across the city are fake.

The signs, which police say advertise an auction at the Marriott Hotel on Saturday, have been popping up in Lincoln.

On Thursday, police called the Marriott Hotel, which told them that there is no auction being held this weekend.

Police encourage people to be wary of potential scams.
