As crazy as that sounds thieves are alleged to have replaced all the elements of the set, worth £650 on LEGO.com, with “other items” and left the box undamaged.
The crime, which took place in Newton Abbot in Devon, was reported on November 26th to the Devon & Cornwall Police constabulary, but the last time the owner knew the Millennium Falcon Star Wars set was intact was on September 20, just after it was purchased.
Anyone with information should contact police via email@example.com or by calling 101 quoting crime reference number CR/103058/17.
