Forty-seven-year-old Thomas Langenbach appeared in court Tuesday on four felony counts of burglary that could net him up to five years in prison if convicted. He didn’t enter a plea.
Authorities say Langenbach covered the original bar codes on Lego sets with his own bar-code stickers to get a cheaper price. They say he then sold the pilfered sets of colorful toy bricks on eBay.
Langenbach works for German software giant SAP. His LinkedIn profile lists him as a vice president in a Northern California division.
