MURRAY -- The Utah Attorney General's Office will auction off thousands of dollars worth of sports memorabilia Thursday in an effort to help a con man's victims.

Items up for sale include a baseball autographed by Babe Ruth, a 1992 dream team jersey signed by Michael Jordan and a 2007 Screaming Eagle Harley Davidson.

All of the items were once owned by South Jordan businessman Darin Kracl. He was convicted of securities fraud for swindling nearly $7 million out of two investors.

The attorney general's chief deputy Kirk Torgensen says this will repay victims of the scam.

"This is their money that he took, and he lived the high life off of it. And he bought stuff with that money that he should never have bought," Torgensen said.

The auction runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 5272 S. College Dr. in Murray.
