1. Wonderful!*#. The combo was lost 17 years ago and now it is my problem.

2. The wire-rack support structure is EXCEPTIONAL.

3. Previous owner to short to reach shelf.

4. No one will be getting into my PRINGLES!

5. I think I found where the security 'disable' panel is located.

There is a certain cult in my area requires, or so it seems a common characteristic of, all members to have a home safe. Abandoned "big' safes are not uncommon.

My guess would be that it's either well hidden (so that the seller didn't see it when s/he was moving out) or empty (so that the seller didn't bother removing it).

I'd think it would be empty, especially since it appears to have been deliberately left.  It's not as though the seller would check the closet and miss the safe.
