Yup. A full-on Lego statue, affectionately known as Ninja J, has been nicked from a store in the Melbourne suburb of Coburg and remains missing. Now, we have some more details regarding the circumstances of this fkn heinous crime.
It was stolen from the storefront display in such a cliché fashion, it sounds like it was ripped from the kidnapping scene of 101 Dalmatians: thanks to CCTV, we know a white Citroen van reversed at breakneck speed through the store’s gates.
A woman hopped out of the vehicle, ran into the shop, grabbed Ninja J, and bolted back to the van, which hurtled off into the distance. A warehouse worker attempted to chase the van on foot, but it was of no use.
