Storage Wars for Former Philly Anchor's Stuff


Do you have a few extra dollars to spend?

You might want to head to Philadelphia. writes that the contents of two storage units in Philadelphia rented by former sports television anchor Don Tollefson will be put up for auction Monday morning and the contents could be hotly contested.

As in the cable series Storage Wars, anyone can bid on Tollefson's belongings at 11:30 a.m. at the Public Storage facility at 456 N. Columbus Blvd.  A Ford Explorer kept there by Tollefson is also up for bid.

An employee at the facility confirmed the two units belong to Tollefson, who was arrested this week on charges he allegedly bilked more than 100 people out of at least $100,000 in a vacation scheme during the last few years. Tollefson had worked as a sportscaster at Philly's FOX and ABC news affiliates for 30 years.

"He's actually a very nice man," said the employee, who declined to give a name, but noted that Tollefson has tried to pay off his debts on the units. Tollefson does have until just before the auction begins Monday morning to pay off his debt and keep ownership of his storage units' contents.
