Connecticut's Attorney General's office has been granted a court order to seize property — including luxury cars and from embattled former owner of a Middletown nightclub and eatery, according to the Hartford Courant.

Earl O'Garro Jr., who along with his wife Kendra operated Us Restaurant at 412 Main Street, is accused of defaulting on a $100,000 state loan for his Hybrid Insurance Group and failing to pay $670,000 in premiums to Starr Indemnity and National Casualty, excess liability insurers for the city of Hartford, the Courant reports.

A Maserati, two BMWs, a Range Rover and a 2,681-square-foot Colonial in Bloomfield and a 7,338 square-foot plantation-style Colonial in Marlborough are among the property the state's Attorney General's office is trying to seize, the Courant says.

Thirteen states, including Connecticut, have revoked or suspended O'Garro's insurance license following allegations of fraud and at least six others are considering similar measures, according to the Hartford Courant.
