Marshals Still Going After Ex-Comptroller's Assets

DIXON, Ill. (AP) -- The U.S. Marshals Service says it's not done seizing and selling off the assets of a former city comptroller who stole nearly $54 million in public funds.

The Dixon Telegraph reports that the marshals are still working to get hold of about a dozen other assets belonging to former Dixon bookkeeper Rita Crundwell.

Crundwell pleaded guilty to embezzling money from Dixon for decades to support a lavish lifestyle. She's serving a nearly 20-year sentence.

Marshals have already sold off properties, a luxury motorhome, Crundwell's jewelry collection and more than 400 horses she owned as part of a renowned breeding operation.

Now they're trying to recoup personal loans Crundwell made. Other items still on the list include a trophy collection, a pickup truck and offspring of the horses.
