DIXON (WIFR) -- More than 100 of Rita Crundwell's belongings have been sold in her Florida vacation home with the highest bid coming in at $10,000.

That was for a farmhouse style table and eight chairs. U.S. Marshalls say the price tag gives us a taste of how Crundwell lived. The lowest bid was a $16 frog lawn ornament. More than 550 people participated in the auction, which brought in nearly $95,000. In the meantime, an online auction highlighting items in Crundwell's Dixon homes were supposed to end at around one p.m. today is still on-going. More than 400 items went on sale Thursday, including a custom-made chandelier, fur couches and lots of other expensive western-themed belongings. We’re still waiting on the final results.

The former Dixon comptroller faces up to 20 years in prison and is accused of stealing more than $53 million from the city of Dixon.
