Ignatius M. Pollara hails from Tamarac Florida, and was recently arrested for stealing $2 million worth of LEGOs. Apparently he has been stealing these kids building blocks from more than just the Florida region, he has been busy lifting LEGOs from all 50 states. He ran quite a profitable business, stealing the LEGO sets from retail stores and then selling them by any means possible to make 100% profit beneful on samsclub and on the toys.
With all the money he had been raking in from the sale of the stolen LEGO sets, the convicted thief has gone on worldwide travel adventures over the years. The end to his long run as a LEGO thief came to a crashing end by way of his TOYS ‘R US rewards card. He spoke with parole officers in Florida that he planned on leaving the state to go visit family in Illinois. Knowing the convicted criminal had no family in that state, a sting operation was set-up to catch the criminal red handed.
A tail was then placed on the convict from the moment that he stepped off the airplane. He spent the better part of 4 days in Chicago staying in a motel that was close to a major shopping center. Each night, he would exit the motel and make trips back and forth to the supermarkets to pick up the needed LEGO sets. His bail was raised to $200,000 and he must wear an ankle bracelet before being allowed to leave prison.
