OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - A fleet of expensive cars and motorcycles seized from a Kansas City-area accountant has sold for more than $1.4 million.

The U.S. Marshals Service announced the results of last week’s auction on Wednesday. The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1q0PLfG ) reports that more than 700 bidders from 30 states participated.

The machines that were sold had belonged to Thomas Hauk, who defrauded more than $4 million from clients. Hauk, of Overland Park, Kansas, awaits sentencing after pleading guilty last December to federal fraud charges linked to his on-the-job theft at a financial services company.

The highest winning bid at the auction was $285,000 for a 2006 Ford GT.

Most of the money raised during the auction at KCI Auto Auction in Kansas City, Missouri, will be returned to the theft victims.
