HARFORD -- It's not too often a post office is up for sheriff's sale, but in this case, this post office in Susquehanna County is owned by actor Bronson Pinchot.

He may be known best for his days as Balki on the television show "Perfect Strangers," but the star is in the red.

Pinchot owns six properties in Harford, but four of them are up for sheriff's sale.

"People like people to come into our community and be part of us. I don't think he ever was," Dorothy Matthews said.

Longtime Harford resident Dorothy Matthews says it's a shame his properties have been sitting like this for a while.

"I think it's sad that he couldn't make something here in the community because he was welcomed. Unfortunately it didn't work out that way," Dorothy Matthews said.

Officials in Susquehanna County say Pinchot also owes back taxes on six properties. The tax office told Newswatch 16 he owes $13,768.61 on those six properties. Officials say he hasn't paid taxes on those properties in two years.

So far there have been no inquiries on any of the properties up for sale.

Residents hope someone comes in and buys them.

"I'm hoping somebody comes along and invests in them. They might be renovated. I'd hate to see them torn down for any reason," William Matthews said.

The sheriff sale for Bronson Pinchot's four properties is scheduled for late April.

His mansion, which was featured on the DIY Network is not up for sheriff's sale, but is on the market for $399,000.
