Self-Storage Company Cancels Auction of Alleged Pedophile's Unit


A self-storage company will cancelled the lien sale of an alleged pedophile's unit at a Delaware facility, instead opting to turn over the unit's contents to the state.

The lien sale at Secure Self Storage in the town of Rehoboth Beach in Sussex County was planned for Tuesday morning. The delinquent tenant is Earl B. Bradley, a pediatrician who will stand trial next month for alleged rape and abuse of more than 100 children over 10 years.

The public has been urging Secure Self Storage not to host the auction because it might reopen emotional wounds for the alleged victims. Attorney General Beau Biden thanked Secure Self Storage in a public statement for agreeing to cancel the sale. Biden also wrote that the state will pay $1 for the contents of the unit and will dispose of them at a later date.

According to a legal notice referenced by the source, other contents of the unit included figurines of Buzz Lightyear from the “Toy Story” movies, crane-style arcade games, electronics, household items, business and kitchen equipment, artwork, building supplies, and boxes.

Secure Self Storage has three locations in Delaware and 16 locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C., and Ontario, Canada.
