The U.S. Marshals Service has entered deals for more than $3 million with buyers on the sale of three of five properties owned by Rita Crundwell, the former comptroller of Dixon, Ill. She pleaded guilty to a federal charge of fraud in November.
U.S. Marshals sold off a substantial amount of former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell’s belongings this weekend. The online auctions netted more than $275,000. That money will be added to a growing escrow account that will someday be turned over to the city of Dixon as restitution for the $53 million Crundwell has admitted to stealing from the city. The U.S. Marshals Service says the latest figures do not include Crundwell’s five real estate holdings and her jewelry collection.
