Sale of N.H. tax evaders’ property carries risks

CONCORD, N.H. — Federal officials are preparing to sell the New Hampshire compound of a tax-evading couple convicted of amassing an arsenal of weapons, but can’t guarantee that explosives aren’t hidden on the 103-acre spread.

In fact, they will openly warn bidders that land mines might be planted throughout Ed and Elaine Brown’s bucolic property in the small town of Plainfield. And they say prospective buyers won’t be allowed on the grounds until they submit a winning bid that frees the government of liability for dismemberment or death.
