Over the weekend, mysterious financier Jeffrey Epstein was arrested on charges of sex trafficking. He stands accused of using his wealth to run a sex-trafficking operation that prosecuters allege victimized girls as young as 14.
The indictment says that Epstein must forfeit "any property, real and personal, that was used or intended to be used to commit or to facilitate the commission of the offence alleged." This includes a mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, an estate in Palm Beach, Florida, and a private jet.
But that is just the beginning of a long list of assets owned by Epstein. Here are some of the assets that Epstein reportedly owns, or has owned, over the years.

Epstein lived in a mansion at East 71st street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan valued at approximately $77 million. It is one of the assets that has been named in the recent indictment he is facing.
The mansion, which was formerly owned by Les Wexner, the CEO of Victoria’s Secret Parent company L Brands, has between seven and nine floors and at least 40 rooms, along with a menagerie of bizarre furnishings.
Those include eyeballs manufactured for injured soldiers, according to Vanity Fair, a heated sidewalk, a mural depicting Epstein in jail, and a customized chessboard carved with likenesses of his staff in promiscuous poses, according to the New York Times.
In addition, Bill Cosby lived across the street at one time.
2. Palm Beach estate
Epstein also spent a considerable amount of time at his estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The home is also listed in the indictment.
Authorities raided the home in 2005 and took video footage of the interior. It was also full of strange decor, similar to his Manhattan mansion. It included massage chairs, dentistry equipment, framed naked photos of young girls as well as his ex-girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell, a British socialite. Maxwell has also been accused of recruiting girls for Epstein in lawsuits according to Page Six.
3. Private jet nicknamed the “Lolita Express”

Because he travelled between multiple homes, Epstein owned at least two private jets.
One was a Boeing 727 nicknamed the "Lolita Express" after the novel "Lolita" by Vladimir Nabokov that details the sexual relationship of the narrator, a middle-aged man, with his 12-year-old stepdaughter.
The jet has also been listed in the indictment, as prosecutors believe it may have been used to transport victims. The flight logs of the jet list some passengers including former President Bill Clinton, according to Gawker.
He also owned a G550 gulf stream, according to Bloomberg, a helicopter, according to Vanity Fair.
