A Kansas City auction of high-end cars and motorcycles seized from a convicted embezzler raised more than $1.4 million, the U.S. Marshals Service said Wednesday.
More than 700 bidders from 30 states participated in last week’s auction.
The vehicles were collected by Thomas Hauk, who stole $4 million while working as an accountant for Assured Management, a Johnson County company affiliated with golfer Tom Watson.
Hauk, of Overland Park, pleaded guilty in December and is awaiting sentencing.

The highest winning bid at the auction was $285,000 for a 2006 Ford GT.
Among the prices paid for other cars included $218,000 for a 2009 Ferrari F-430 Scuderia, $186,000 for a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, $172,000 for a 2009 Mosler MT900S, and $104,000 for a 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera.
Eleven Ducati motorcycles were also auctioned for prices ranging from $6,250 to $47,000.
Three garage condo units where Hauk stored the vehicles in south Kansas City are also being sold.
Most of the money raised from the auction and real estate sales will be returned to the theft victims after the case is completed.
