More Crundwell Property Being Sold

Posted by wlpo on January 3, 2013

DIXON, Ill. (AP) – The U.S. Marshals Service says it will raise more than $3 million from the sale of three properties in Lee County belonging to former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell.

The properties sold include the horse ranch, a house outside Dixon and about 80 acres of farmland. So far marshals have raised about $8 million from auctions of Crundwell’s belongings. That money will go toward restitution.

Crundwell pleaded guilty in November to federal charges alleging she stole more than $53 million from Dixon during her time as comptroller. She’s accused of using the money to fund a lavish lifestyle.
