Horses owned by Dixon's former comptroller will go up for sale


The 400 horses that belong to former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell will be put up for sale. During a civil hearing Monday the judge set the sale of the animals to happen between August 1st and Sept. 30.  The U.S. Marshall Services will decide the exact date.

The Marshalls are already selling Crudwell's luxury motor home.  It is for sale via sealed bids. The 2009 Liberty Coach Motor Home has a minimum bid of $1 million. Bids will be accepted until 2 p.m. on August 1.

Crundwell, 59, has been indicted for allegedly stealing more than $53 million from the City of Dixon since 1990 and using the proceeds to finance her horse breeding business and lavish lifestyle.
