When you hear of a gang of international thieves being arrested in Paris, you don’t expect the word “Lego”, but here it is.
Authorities arrested two men and one woman who had traveled from Poland to a town outside of Paris. They where they were caught raiding a shop and stealing Lego toys to take back to Poland for sale.
Lego is actually a valuable asset for thieves.
In 2014 police in Arizona retrieved stolen Legos worth $145,000 and arrested four people.
In Australia that same year, professional thieves targeted toy shops, taking $22,000.
