Rita Crundwell Arrested

If you're big into QH showing, you should know who this is.

Ms. Crundwell is accused of embezzling THIRTY MILLION dollars from the city of Dixon, where she worked as the Comptroller.

She was the Leading Owner for the seventh year in a row in 2010.

I have no words, except to ask, how in heck did she get away with stealing that much money and nobody figured it out until now?!

Haha that's funny.

The lady made $80,000 a year and is driving around in a 2 million dollar motorhome and a fancy rig...hmmm....haha

I hope she gets the max 20 years in jail.

Just didn't want something like this getting buried while all the, 'Do you use tampons or pads?' or 'What horszee breeds do you lurve?' threads get bumped to the top. Too many darned kids on this board.

You kids get off my lawn!!!!

Never heard of her... But then again, I don't get all into the "who's who" of horse worlds - Now if you named a local winner (as in the tri-state area) then I'd recognize the name... Horse names I recognize more often then people names...

Pretty amazing what people will do isn't it? I'm sure they've been investigating her for quite some time. Horse people are crazy.... :)

I've heard the name but I'm not in the pleasure end of the QH world.

Even so - outrageous. There are many of us who scrimp and get by in other areas to be able to compete.

People who don't understand how the financial end of things work keep asking how she got away with it.

Well, she was the ONLY one doing the books, had been working there upwards of 30 years, and it's a small city so the Town Council and Mayor were probably continually elected year after year.

Contrary to popular belief, it's not an outside auditing firm's job to figure out embezzlement. As long as the financial and bank statements, as well as vendor records matched, the auditors wouldn't have had a clue what she was doing. That's why the whistle blower was the woman subbing for her while she was out on extended leave.

I feel sorry for the small town, they'll be lucky to get a nickel on the dollars lost.

I said that I'd never heard of her but I take it back. I just looked her up and facebook and checked out her photos. I think I've even met her and she was a very nice lady. I have mixed emotions, how can someone that appears to be so nice do something so awful? I know that it's "only" money but it's hard earned tax payers money and how dare she do something like that?
