    Bankrobber turned multimillionaire holding bizarre bazaar

    Del Dunmire, an 80-year-old Missouri man who once robbed a bank to pay off gambling debts, but went on to found multi-million dollar company Growth Industries, is auctioning off his eclectic collection of toys in a bizarre bazaar. His 'toybox' is actually a huge former Walmart in Harrisonville and includes numerous properties (which have to be viewed separately as they wouldn't fit in the toybox).

    Del is also known for buying serial killer Bob Berdella's home, to demolish it.

    Dunmire's "toy box" is 72,000 square feet of items he's collected over the years. It's all up for auction and for sale this weekend, including an ATV and even a speed boat. Name it and it will likely be found at the auction.

    "All different kinds of furniture, all different styles," said Pat Thomas, the director of real estate for Growth Industries.

    Here's his auction website. This week's list of luxury goodies include an egg slicer and a laundry hamper.
