Feds Continue Selling Off Crundwell Property

Posted by wlpo on November 20, 2012

DIXON, Ill. (AP) – U.S. Marshals are auctioning a half-dozen vehicles and boats that once were owned by Rita Crundwell.

U.S. Marshals said yesterday that the online auction of Crundwell’s assets in Florida and Wisconsin ends Dec. 6. They plan to add a pontoon boat to the auction soon. Items on auction now include a 1967 Corvette Roadster and a 2005 Ford Thunderbird.

Crundwell pleaded guilty last week to a federal count accusing her of stealing over 50 million from the city of Dixon, where she was comptroller until earlier this year. The 59-year-old Crundwell is accused of using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and a horse-breeding operation.

So far marshals have raised $7.4 million selling Crundwell’s assets.
