$7.5 million in cash discovered in storage unit purchased for $500


A married couple received an unexpected Christmas gift after purchasing a storage unit in Southern California.

According to KFMB CBS, the couple found $7.5 million in cash after buying the storage unit for only $500. 

The previous owners of the storage unit contacted the couple, who wishes to remain anonymous, after discovering their storage unit was sold. 

After declining the first offer, the couple agreed to only keep $1.2 million and give the previous owners of the storage unit the remaining amount, CBS 8News reports. 

It has not been determined at this time if the cash found was drug-related.
