NEW YORK (AP) - The U.S. Marshals Service has taken possession
of the $7 million Manhattan penthouse where financier Bernard Madoff and his wife lived.
U.S. Marshal Joseph Guccione said Thursday that the marshals were at the property pursuant to a court order.
Madoff was sentenced Monday to 150 years in prison for a fraud that cost thousands of investors billions of dollars.
