Between September 2011 and March 2012, in her capacity as comptroller, Crundwell wrote 19 checks totaling $3.5 million on the Capital Development Fund account payable to “Treasurer,” and deposited these checks into the account listing RSCDA as the joint account holder. She then allegedly took more than $3 million from the RSCDA account by checks and online withdrawals, using only about $74,000 for the city’s operations. Crundwell allegedly used the remainder of those funds, more than $3.2 million, for her own personal and business expenses, including approximately $450,000 relating to her horse farming operations, $600,000 in online credit card payments, and $67,000 to purchase a 2012 Chevy Silverado pickup truck.

After discovering that Crundwell allegedly had recently transferred $3,558,000 in city funds to the RSCDA account, the FBI obtained additional bank records showing that between July 2006 and March 2012, Crundwell allegedly deposited a total of more than $30 million in city funds into the RSCDA account, and paid out the same for her own personal and business expenses.

The complaint alleges that she used fraudulently obtained funds to make additional purchases, including a 2009 Liberty Coach Motor Home for more than $2 million, a 2009 Kenworth T800 Tractor Truck for $147,000, a 2009 Freightliner Truck for $140,000, a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, and a 2009 Featherlite Horse Trailer for $259,000. Between January of 2007 and March of 2012, Crundwell incurred charges of more than $2.5 million on her personal American Express credit card account, including more than $339,000 on jewelry alone, and allegedly used Dixon funds to pay the entire amount of charges.

What does a 2.1 Million Dollar Liberty Coach Look Like?

Our town crook, Rita Crundwell, in the midst of extorting over 30 million dollars from our nice little town of Dixon, IL purchased a 2009 Liberty Coach "motorhome" for 2.1 million (yes, million) dollars. And what does this look like? Here's a few images for ya:

You know, there's something to be said for a good old fashioned tar and feathering! Or maybe more relevant, a horse whipping! You can't tell me that no one in City Hall was being paid off to look the other way!

22 yrs of stealing from dixon ,and she has had no guilt,thus no heart ,no consience.when it comes to her punishment ,courts should have none either.sell all her belongings including her clothes ,shoes,etc.she doesnt deserve anything when n if she after she serves time,give all the money back to dixon.she has no shame.and you cant tell me her family had no clue,.b***h deserves everything she has comming to her.i have nothing but anger towards her and im not a resident of dixon.maybe all comptrollers should be looked into as wellas other officials of city and state,and government

Somebody must have been looking the other way to let her get away with everything. They must have known how much money was coming in from the state, which didn't jive with the amount spent. The mayor/city council must have known and should be fired from office. Why they haven't been fired yet, and told by residents at the May 7th council meeting that they were doing a good job, boggles the mind.

Seems to me she bought her land andhouses from someone. By the way, Isn't your mayor a realtor?

OH HOW CUTE! OUR LITTLE CITY OFFICIALS TRIED TO PULL A BIG GOVERNMENT SCAM...DORKS!!! by the way..thanks for the 50% increase in the water bill

She needs to be locked up with the rest of the criminals - because that s what she is - no more - no less. Let's hope the people of Dixon are smarter then she is (?) and cleans house! There is no way - no how - no one else knew what was going on and if they didn't they are not intelligent enough to be working for the City of Dixon anyway!!

Only in Illinois. We have embezzlement in Nebraska but nothing like this. Do they teach this stuff in Chicago and Springfield?

Anonymous said...

This is bullshit how come the bank didn't catch this being the small town that dixon is.And Dixon said they didn't have no money to repair the memorial pool because she took it all.That's a shame.And why didn't the IRS catch this and do a audit they surely audit me for not claiming one of W2 forms....Wow...born & raised in dixon

If not one city official steps down, I can rest-assure you there will be a clean sweep of office come next election!! City officials - start packing and looking for other income!! It will no longer be on the backs of the city people!!

Anonymous said...

Three of the four commissioners are new so the uninformed can stop calling for mass resignation. The other group needs to know the Memorial Pool belongs to the Park District, not the city of Dixon.
The almost disturbing as the theft aspect is that 90% of the comments I have seen everywhere show that the average commenter is so uninformed that they don't understand the separation of governmental bodies such as park district, school district, city, county etc. Does anyone imagine that the incredible amount of willful ignorance played a part in Crundwell's ability to pull this off? Wise up folks. If you don't know any of this stuff you are probably getting screwed purple in every aspect of your lives.

Anonymous said...

To previous anonymous: You've managed to slam most all bloggers comments except the land sale and mayor being a realtor?????
And if you are a Dixon resident, guess you're "getting screwed purple" as well!!!!!

Anonymous said...

If you think posts with incorrect information or incorrect statements are helpful I have no answer for you. You can find out if the mayor was the realtor by checking the County Recorder's office. I also agree with most of the posts here and their sentiment. Just can't go along with summarily canning the three new commissioners or the Memorial Pool meme or that being a realtor is a suspicious activity-although that would sure get the crowd fired up if the mayor was her realtor.

Anonymous said...

Somehow our city officials missed "Incorrect information" and "Incorrect statements" or we wouldn't be in this predicament. How do you expect "the people" to know when the officials don't even know...the people depend upon city officials for information...as heard by commentators at the open city council meeting informtation is still not forthcoming....

Anonymous said...

If someone knows a relator, they will go to them when looking to purchase house, land, or business. That is common sense.

Interesting post made here. One thing I would like to
say is the fact most professional areas consider the Bachelor Degree as the entry
level requirement for an online college degree.
While Associate Certifications are a great way to begin, completing your
own Bachelors reveals many entrance doors to various careers, there are
numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available through institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental
University Online and Kaplan. Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions make available Online types of their qualifications but often for a considerably higher
fee than the institutions that specialize in online qualification programs.

Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks come across as if they are written by brain dead visitors?

:-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites,
I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list every one of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
