HOUSTON—Cars, computers and televisions that belong to a convicted felon are up for auction Thursday.

The U.S. Marshal’s Office seized the items from a guy who was convicted for a mortgage scheme and money laundering. He was sentenced to five years in prison.

The luxury items will be offered for a fraction of the retail price.

“We have TVs, we have sports memorabilia, we have clothes, we have furniture, we have stadium seats, we got brand new washer and dryers, we have a grandfather clock—what more would you need?” Auctioneer Kevin Scully said.   

If you’re looking for something with wheels those items are available too.

“We have motorcycles, we have Harleys, we have wheels and tires, we have barbeque pits. We actually have two Harleys, we have Ducatis, we have trucks, SUVs, minivans,” he said.

Ninety percent of the live auction earnings go right back to victims of crime.

If you’d like to check it out, the preview starts at 8 a.m. Thursday, with bidding beginning at 10 a.m.
