More than 500 pieces of personal property from Bowling Green's Former Chief Financial Officer will be made available for public sale at an auction on Saturday.

Antique furniture, jewelry including a Rolex watch, a tanning bed, Cadillac Escalade and 2 Corvettes are among the lots up for auction on Saturday.

Cooper will use all of the net proceeds to help his effort to repay almost $4 million in taxpayer money that he has admitted to stealing during his tenure at the city.

"It's our duty to try and obtain as much money as we can because the net proceeds is going to the city," said auctioneer Ken Byrd.

Serious bidders and curious gawkers can get a closer look at the auction items during a preview on Friday afternoon and the sale itself will begin at 10:00 am on Saturday.
