(MSNBC) The chief financial officer of a small Illinois city – a woman who had a lavish lifestyle that included a $2.1 million motor home and a horse farm – is under arrest, accused of embezzling $30 million from the city.

Rita Crundwell, 58, was arrested Tuesday at City Hall in Dixon, Ill., the Chicago Tribune reported, and later charged with wire fraud.

Paid a salary of $80,000 a year, Crundwell spent large sums to operate her 150-horse Meri-J Ranch, as well as $340,000 on jewelry and $2.1 million on a luxury motor home, the FBI alleges in its criminal complaint.
