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.
Reporters were offered a glimpse into several properties owned by former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell.
The U.S. Marshals Service will sell the furnishings and other personal property from Rita Crundwell’s residences in Dixon, Ill., and Englewood, Fla., via online auction through Dec. 8 at http://online.professionalauction.com.
The Marshals have received unsolicited offers for three pieces of Crundwell’s real property and are accepting competing offers until Dec. 21.
