And finally... old kid on the block

A septuagenarian has been caught with nearly 3,000 boxes of allegedly stolen LEGO sets.

Richard Siegel, 71, is accused of masterminding an organised retail theft scheme, with the allegedly stolen boxes ranging in price from $20 to $1,000 each.

As officers were raiding his Los Angeles home, several potential buyers showed up, police said.

Police also arrested a 39-year-old, Blanca Gudino, accused of stealing the LEGO sets from retailers and dropping them off at Siegel’s house, CBS News reports.
