Dan Dotson, who is a star on the TV show, “Storage Wars”, sold a storage unit for $500, but had no idea what the new owner would find in there.
The new owner found $7.5 million in cash in it. The money was inside a safe. We don’t know if Dotson knew the safe was in there, or why he didn’t try to open it himself.
Soon after finding the money, the new owner of the storage unit got a call from an attorney representing the original owners of the unit. The original owners offered $600,000 to return the cash, but the two sides eventually settled on $1.2 million.
Dotson and his wife talked about it.
