This is the second high-profile property sale in the Dallas area in the last two years. In May 2008, the U.S. Marshals took possession of a 22,000 square foot, seven-bedroom home on Panorama Court in Arlington, Texas and successfully auctioned it on Bid4Assets' site for $1.89 million.
The assets offered for sale by the U.S. Marshals Service are forfeited to the United States under federal forfeiture laws. The U.S. Marshals administer the Department of Justice's Asset Forfeiture Fund by managing and disposing of properties seized and forfeited by federal law enforcement agencies and U.S. attorneys nationwide. The program has become a key part of the federal government's efforts to combat major criminal activities. Currently, the Marshals manage almost $1.7 billion worth of property.
The Asset Forfeiture Program consists of the U.S. Marshals, U.S. Attorneys Offices, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Department of State's Diplomatic Security Service and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
