CHICAGO (CBS) — The online auction of items from homes that once belonged to former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell has ended.
The auction of furnishings in the Englewood, Florida home that belonged to Crundwell, generated nearly $100,000.
A table and 8 chairs brought in the largest amount, $11,000.
Furnishings at the home where Crundwell spent most of her time, in Dixon, sold for 181 thousand dollars.
A grand piano brought in the largest single amount, $4,500.
The sale of the furnishings and possessions sold earlier, including more than 400 horses and horse semen for a breeding program, brought in a total $7.4 million.
A long way from the $53 million that Crundwell admits she stole, while serving as Dixon’s Comptroller.
