Florida - The 100-pound, 8-foot-tall mysterious Lego man that was found on a Florida beach may soon be sprung from a holding room.
Tom Knight, Sarasota County Sheriff said on Thursday that Lego-man could be freed from the shed where he'd been kept for the past two days.
The giant Lego appeared on Siesta Key beach on Tuesday morning. "No Real Than You Are" was written on its shirt, along with "Ego Leonard" and the number 8. Local newspapers report the name "Ego Leonard" is the name of a Netherlands artist, but it wasn't immediately clear who was behind the work. The story of the Lego man has gotten worldwide attention.
Knight says the Lego man is being well kept and hopes the giant fiberglass man can be placed on display somewhere in the community.
