Hate to be rude and ask him about it, other than to say i am sorry he has it.
Knew that would happen. Here's a better idea....
Donate the items to a trusted, established charitable organization in your area. Sidenote: here in the Norfolk we have Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters which maintains a handful of thrift stores. Type up a detailed accounting of the individual items and assigned $$ values (check e-bay and the like). Get a receipt and claim the $$ amount as a charitable donation on your taxes. The charity will make some bucks, you get the write-off and don't have to deal with the public and the schmucks who crawl out from the woodowork. As long as you have a basis for the assigned values, the IRS shouldn't give you too much of a headache.
