Police evidence auctioned on eBay

BALTIMORE (AP) — Prosecutors in former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon’s perjury case are putting the spoils of their efforts on eBay.

An Xbox 360 video game console seized during a raid on Dixon’s home is for sale. As of Tuesday afternoon, the highest bid was $660. Potential buyers have until March 18 to bid on the Xbox.

Dixon pleaded guilty to perjury for lying about gifts, and a jury convicted her of embezzling gift cards donated to the city for needy families. She received probation and stepped down as mayor.

State Prosecutor Robert Rohrbaugh says he plans to post Dixon’s two fur coats and a camcorder on eBay soon. Proceeds from the sales will go to a city program that provides summer jobs for teens.
