SPRING, Texas (AP) - Some family heirlooms hidden in a dresser and found during a Houston-area estate sale will be returned to relatives of the man who died.

Officials with Premier Estate Sales Network planned to hand over the estimated $10,000 worth of gold jewelry, dog tags, coins from the 1930s and other items on Thursday in Spring.

Company representative Jeffrey Allen says a buyer on Saturday paid $125 for a supposed empty three-drawer dresser during an estate sale in Missouri City. The dresser was turned on its side, for loading, when Allen heard sounds like a “slot machine.”

A hidden bottom drawer yielded the valuables.

Allen says the buyer kept the dresser but insisted the heirlooms be returned.

The family’s name and further details on them weren’t immediately released.
