DENTON (AP) – An auctioneer accused of bilking families near Buffalo, New York who had entrusted him with selling their deceased relatives’ heirlooms has been arrested in Denton by U.S. marshals. 

Anthony Monkelban fled Buffalo in August as complaints began piling up against him for failing to make good on payments for property he was supposed to liquidate.  

Arrest warrants were issued in Buffalo and at least six suburbs after the 49-year-old Monkelban, took away family heirlooms and valuables but never followed through with promised auctions. 

Authorities tell The Buffalo News that Monkelban was found hiding out in a recreational vehicle park in Denton earlier this week. They said Monkelban, who was staying with a friend, offered no resistance when marshals showed up.
