SIESTA KEY, Fla.- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has taken into protective custody a giant Lego® man who appeared on Siesta Key Public Beach today.

A beachgoer found the “man” near Access 5 this morning. He has tentatively been identified as “Lego Leonard,” the name on the back of his shirt. No one is sure how he arrived at the beach, whether he was placed there or if he washed up in the surf.

Mr. Leonard is about eight feet tall, weighs approximately 100 pounds and is made of fiberglass. The only other identifying information was the writing on the front of his shirt which says “No Real Than You Are” and the number “8” on his back.

Mr. Leonard is being kept in a secure environment until his owner comes forward.
