‘Storage Wars’ Guy Buys $7.2 Million Locker For $500 [VIDEO]

Purchase an anonymous abandoned storage unit at auction, and hopefully make a profit once you discover it’s treasures. One guy got some treasure alright!

That show Storage Wars is SO interesting! It’s a cool idea, to purchase an anonymous abandoned storage unit at auction, and hopefully make a profit once you discover it’s treasures. One guy got some treasure alright!

Dan Dotson, from Storage Wars, recently sold a storage unit for $500, only to find out there was $7.5 million inside!

The money was inside a safe. It’s not clear whether Dotson knew the safe was in there, or why he didn’t try to open it himself.  But the new owner did, and found the cash.

But soon after finding the money, the new owner got a call from an attorney representing the original owners of the unit.

They offered the new owner $600,000 to return the cash, but the two sides eventually settled on $1.2 million. What a pay day!

The couple discussed the find in a video:
