Busted Drug Dealers' Bling Being Auctioned

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A $23,000 gold pendant depicting Jesus is among the hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of jewelry confiscated during drug busts in North Carolina.

There are also a $38,000 watch and a diamond-studden gold gorilla. Though a stone is missing it's still appraised at $21,600.

The state Department of Revenue is hoping to auction the items.A spokeswoman says "You'd be surprised who buys this stuff."

The public auction, scheduled for Thursday at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, will be the first of its kind in 9 years.
