Sergeant Santa's workshop sold

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The West Marshall Street workshop once owned by Sergeant Santa has been sold. The new owner plans on starting a business in the shop.

Sergeant Santa left behind years of donations that the new owner is now sorting and giving away to Goodwill and other organizations.

Sergeant Santa, whose real name is Ricky Duling, handed out Christmas presents to children in need throughout the city.

He died last month at the age of 84.
