British court orders thief's Elvis collection to be auctioned

LONDON (AP) - A court in London ruled today that hundreds of rare Elvis Presley records and pieces of memorabilia collected by a woman must be auctioned.

The woman had stolen almost one million dollars from her employer and the Elvis material will be auctioned to repay her debt.

The money will be used to repay Julie Wall's employer, North Kesteven District Council.

Prosecutors said Wall stole the money over a ten-year period while she worked as a cashier for the council, and spent the money at collectors' fairs and specialty stores across Britain.

The collection includes rare recordings and is believed to be Wall's only asset.
