'Crazy for Lego' man steals thousands of sets

"Portland, Oregon - A 40-year-old man is behind bars, accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars of Lego sets.

William Swanberg was indicted on Wednesday by a Washington County grand jury on two counts of felony theft and one count of attempted felony theft.

Swanberg - who is being held on $250 000 (about R1,6-million) bail - allegedly stole Lego sets from Target stores in Oregon by switching the bar codes on the boxes, covering over the pricing labels of expensive sets with labels from inexpensive ones, said Detective Troy Dolyniuk, a member of the Washington County fraud and identity theft enforcement team."
