Former Montclair Home of Russian Spies For Sale
A northern New Jersey home on the market features four bedrooms, an updated kitchen and a slice of Russian spy history.
The U.S. Marshals Service says it’s selling a Montclair home whose previous owners were arrested in 2010 by the FBI as members of a Russian spy ring.
Authorities say the home’s former occupants went by the aliases Richard and Cynthia Murphy and were members of a group of deep-cover Russian operatives who had been living in the U.S. for years under the guise of leading seemingly normal lives.
The ring was shut down in June 2010 after a decade-long counterintelligence probe that led to the biggest spy swap since the Cold War.
The home has an unfinished basement and a $444,900 list price with Fast Track Real Estate Co., of nearby Waldwick.
