DIXON, Illinois — The U.S. Marshal's Service is selling off fur vests, horsemanship jackets, belt buckles and other property that one belonged to a former comptroller now imprisoned for stealing nearly $54 million from a northern Illinois city.

An online auction of property seized from Dixon's longtime bookkeeper, Rita Crundwell, runs from Tuesday through Feb. 2. Two similar auctions were held last year.

One fur coat is valued at around $1,200. There's also a life-sized fiberglass horse valued at $325 and a 1990 Yamaha scooter listed for $350.

Crundwell is serving 20 years in a federal prison. She used the money she stole to support a lavish lifestyle and a renowned horse-breeding operation.

As of the end of December, the city had been paid about $40 million in connection with the Crundwell case.
