MOSCOW, April 17 (RIA Novosti) – The US Marshals Service has put up for sale the New Jersey former family home of two Russian spies arrested by the FBI in 2010.
Known under their American aliases Richard and Cynthia Murphy, the two spies and their children lived in a house in the town of Montclair that is now on the market priced at $444,900.
“Built in 1950, the 1,830 square-foot [550 square-meter] house has four bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, a recently updated kitchen, a garage and an unfinished basement. The lot backs to open space,” the marshals service said in a statement issued on Friday.
The couple, whose real names are Vladimir and Lydia Guryev, lived a seemingly normal life in the neat beige house while working as part of a deep-cover ring of operatives collecting data for Russian intelligence.
The Guryevs and eight others were detained as the result of an FBI operation in June 2010 and pleaded guilty to charges of failing to register as agents of a foreign government. Their property was confiscated by the government, and they were deported from the US in exchange for the release by Russia of four Russians convicted of spying for the West.
