The Delaware County sheriff's office is holding an auction beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 27, behind the Frank B. Willis Building, 2079 U.S. 23 N., Delaware.

Sheriff Walter Davis said more than 100 items previously owned by a couple accused of scamming friends and family out of more than $800,000 will be sold at the auction.

The sheriff's office seized the property from the home of Melanie and Phylip Chen on Oct. 29. The Chens face felony theft charges and are scheduled to stand trial. Judge Duncan Whitney ordered the property sold, after the Chens signed a release agreement.

The items for auction include furniture, home electronics, purses, and jewelry.
