U.S. Marshals to sell 300 horses in online auction
DIXON, — The U.S Marshal's Service announced plans to sell the remainder of horses owned by a former Illinois city official charged with stealing public funds.
Federal officials say an online auction earlier this month brought in $1.64 million for 80 of the horses owned by indicted former Dixon Treasurer Rita Crundwell. More than 300 horses remain to be sold.
Crundwell is accused of misappropriating more than $53 million from Dixon to help support a lavish lifestyle and a horse breeding operation. She's pleaded not guilty.
A live and Web simulcast auction will be held in Dixon on Sunday and Monday, starting at 11 a.m. each day. Auctioneers say they expect to sell horses from $400 youngsters to six-figure show and breeding horses.
The auction will be held at Dixon's RC Ranch.
