Crundwell properties sold for $3 million
DIXON – The U.S. Marshals Service says it will raise more than $3 million from the sale of three properties belonging to disgraced former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell.
U.S. Marshals said in a Wednesday news release that it was accepting contracts totaling more than $3 million on properties in Lee County. Crundwell pleaded guilty in November to federal charges alleging she stole more than $53 million from the city of Dixon during her time as comptroller. Authorities say she used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and horse ranch.
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.
