DIXON (AP) — U.S. Marshals are auctioning a half-dozen vehicles and boats that once were owned by the city's former comptroller who admitted to stealing $53 million in taxpayer money.

U.S. Marshals said Monday that the online auction of Rita Crundwell's assets in Florida and Wisconsin ends Dec. 6.Items on auction now include a 1967 Corvette Roadster and a 2005 Ford Thunderbird.They plan to add a pontoon boat to the auction soon.

Last week Crundwell pleaded guilty to a federal count accusing her of stealing the money from Dixon, Ill., where she was comptroller until earlier this year. The 59-year-old Crundwell is accused of using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and a horse-breeding operation.

So far marshals have raised $7.4 million selling her assets.
