A resident of the British city of Cirencester stole the head of a mechanic statue from cubes of Lego on March 2 , which stood there for eight years. Three days later, on March 5, my head was returned, and a note was attached to it: “I’m sorry, I was very drunk.”

The owner of the toy store Mark Mitchell (Mark Mitchell) said that he launched a campaign in social networks to regain the loss. The sculpture was presented to the toy store by the company Lego, and the owner feared that it could not be replaced.

The head is quite heavy, so to steal it you need to be strong. All I can say is that even if the person who took his head was drunk, it was a reckless act. I’m just glad that my head was returned.

According to Mitchell, the head was already attached to the statue. According to him, the mechanic became a local landmark – he was often photographed by tourists and local residents.Photos of The Sun
