Total for Sold Crundwell Assets at $7.9 Million

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.

The latest auctions have cleared out Crundwell’s homes in Dixon and Florida. The piano brought in $4,550. A grandfather clock went for a little more than $1500. The highest priced item was a “farmhouse-style” table and chairs: bids reached $11,000.  Crundwell’s gold Prada suitcase went for $900, and her tanning bed brought in another $650. The next items up for sale will be Crundwell’s homes. Bids are due by December 21st.
