Mesa has auctioned off a 132-acre piece of property with a controversial past.

The city-owned land at Thomas and Recker Roads was the subject of a bidding war at last week’s auction, ultimately selling for more than $21 million.

Reporter Jim Walsh of the East Valley Tribune covered the auction and has written about the property’s past. The Show spoke with him about it.
