There were no bidders today for the compound of the tax-evading couple convicted of amassing an arsenal of weapons and holding law enforcement officials at bay for nine months in 2007.
The auction of Ed and Elaine Brown's 100 acres in Plainfield took place this afternoon at federal court in Concord. The minimum required bid was $250,000.
Authorities had refused to allow prospective bidders to tour the property. Last year, the U.S. Marshals Service cited the possibility of land mines and other explosives buried on the property as a complication.
