Heh, heh....... while many cities are experiencing financial woes Dixon will finally be getting a raise it seems now that Rita will not be sticking her hands in the till. It sounds as if some of the sales will be in the near future. I might go just to watch and see what kind of money they are able to bring in.

Much local speculation that there is a plea deal in the works, explaining the fact that they are already gearing up on these sales. I have to wonder what kind of a deal they might make with the devil...........

From above link:

Officials started showing off Crudwell's massive homes on Friday with the hope of recouping some of the money Crundwell owes the city. While Crundwell was ordered to pay full restitution, it appears unlikely that the sale of her assets will come close to restoring the $53 million she was charged with stealing from the city of Dixon.

So far, authorities have raised roughly $7.4 million from selling her horses, vehicles and custom motor home. Meanwhile, her jewelry is valued at about half a million dollars

They also plan to sell off her two Dixon homes, her ranch, her home in Englewood, Florida and some 80 acres of prime farmland.

Her main house is expected to fetch a tidy sum, though authorities would not say exactly how much the house is worth, hoping to get the most out of the property as they can.

To get a sense of just how grand the estate was, the massive master bedroom - complete with leather and cowhide couches, a 62-inch television and a lot office - is said to be as big as of the more modest homes in the small farming town.

‘This is not the way a lot of people live around here,’ said Jason Wojdylo, a chief inspector with the Marshals Service's asset forfeiture division. ‘It was a lavish lifestyle ... [and] while the city of Dixon was closing its [public] pools because it couldn't afford to operate them, the defendant built a pool complete with sauna ... money was not spared.’

Witnesses testify at Crundwell sentencing hearing

FBI agent Patrick Garry testified about his claim that, in addition to the money she was accused of stealing from the City of Dixon, Crundwell also took money from accounts belonging to Dixon’s four sister cities located all over the world.

Garry said he became aware of the sister city accounts in an April 2012 search of Crundwell’s home, during which he found 33 checks totaling just over $25,000.

(Video at link. She certainly looks quite different now that she can't afford to be so pampered!)

I still can't get over how much money she stole and how long it took to be noticed. It is just mind blowing.

I have been trying to figure out just how much money Dixon had to begin with if this woman could steal as large a chunk as she did and it not even be noticed for so long.

smh

Can someone count the watches??? I ran out of wrists, then fingers & toes!

Too bad I can't afford that rose gold Rolex or the chocolate diamond earrings.

I find the number of crosses more disturbing than the number of wristwatches!

Here's hoping folks with disposable income help Dixon this weekend,

Apparently it didn't have all that much. Which makes it even more bizarre that they didn't notice anything.
