A few days ago, Fairy Bricks, a charity in the UK that gives LEGO to children in hospitals, was a victim of a robbery at their headquarters. As you can see in the picture above, the place was ransacked and there were a number of LEGO sets that were stolen. The perpetrator(s) cut through a metal sheet from the outside to get in. Also their van that is used to deliver the sets was also stolen but it has since been returned. This isn’t the first time that Fairy Bricks has been robbed as their van was broken in a few years ago.
If you’re in the UK, keep an eye out for the following sets which were stolen in large quantities. If you have any information, please contact Fairy Bricks or the West Yorkshire Police.
Update: LEGO has tweeted that they will be working with Fairy Bricks to replace the sets as soon as possible.
