The Nusajaya police nabbed him at his home in Jementah, Segamat at 2:15am after they received a report from the Legoland Resort Malaysia hotel staff that several items were missing from a hotel room. The 11 stolen items included a hotel directory, coffee tray, throw pillow, and bed runner amounting to RM22,575 in value.

Apparently, upon the suspect’s arrest, the police also found a bag full of the resort hotel’s LEGO block displays. He had nicked a total of 7 LEGO figurine displays and 4 other Legoland Resort Malaysia merchandise. Among the displays recovered by police were the popular LEGO Dragon, LEGO Monkey, and also the LEGO Pirate King.
