Virginia is getting ready to auction off hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of items that have gone unclaimed and ended up in state-managed storage. The state Treasury Department tries to find the items’ rightful owners, but storage space is not unlimited, so some of the jewelry, furniture, coins and other items eventually go on sale. The proceeds go to a fund to support Virginia public schools. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
