Other eye-catching items include a ladies Rolex watch, a Cartier necklace, and a Tiffany diamond ring.
The U.S. Marshals Service consolidates pieces from cases nationwide and holds auctions of those items several times a year, according to Lynzey Donahue, a spokeswoman for the federal agency that is part of the Justice Department. Proceeds generated from the auctions are used to operate the program, compensate victims and support various law enforcement efforts, she said.
The online auction can be accessed via www.txauction.com. Previews of the auction items are scheduled for Friday starting at 10 a.m. CDT (that’s 11 a.m. EDT) and Saturday starting at 9 a.m. CDT (that’s 10 a.m. EDT).
Registration and pre-bidding are open now at www.txauction.com. Online bidders must pay a $1,000 deposit by 5 p.m. CDT today, Aug. 2 (that’s 6 p.m. EDT).
