DIXON, Ill. (AP) -- U.S. Marshals are again auctioning items belonging to former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell, who admitted to stealing $53 million from the northern Illinois city.

Items from Crundwell's Florida vacation home go up for bidding from 4 p.m. Wednesday through 5 p.m. Friday. More items from her home and ranch in Dixon will be auctioned from 4 p.m. Thursday through 1 p.m. Saturday. The Telegraph in Dixon reports (http://bit.ly/VkmBlp) that the items include home furnishings, artwork, appliances and electronics.

Crundwell was charged with stealing the millions from Dixon over two decades and using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and horse ranch. So far the government has raised about $7.4 million from the sale of Crundwell's horses, luxury motor home, vehicles and other equipment.

Crundwell will be sentenced in February.
