Dare County, NC – The Dare County Sheriff’s Office is now offering residents a location to finalize sales or purchases of items that are set-up through internet platforms such as eBay, Craigslist, or virtual yard sales.

The exchange locations is at the Dare County Justice Center in front of the courthouse. There are two parking spots marked with signs provided by the Dare County Public Information Office.

Both of the spots are monitored by video surveillance.

The Dare County Sheriff’s Office says this was not done because any ongoing issues in Dare County, but hopefully a preventive step to help our citizens when using the internet or other means to sell and purchase items.

Despite the safe location, they also recommend you take someone with you and  note things such as vehicle description and tags in case something happens.
