The Lego Crime Ring Movie

People think I joke about Lego sets being a highly fenced item. Okay, they also wonder what it means “to fence” something. Do people really not know that terminology? Mickey Spillane’s ghost just choked on a salted peanut.

I may have consumed too many hardboiled detective tales in my youth.

Anyway, criminals love Legos precisely because so many other people love Legos — and are willing to pay for said Legos.

Cops know that criminals love Legos and occasionally bust said criminals with illegal Legos and why is there not a movie about this already?!?

P.S. I am totally dropping “Portland is a hotbed of Lego crime” into a conversation at the next opportunity.
