OKLAHOMA CITY, May 6 (UPI) -- Police in Oklahoma said they arrested a man on suspicion of stealing more than $10,000 worth of Lego toys from area Target stores.

Oklahoma City police said employees at a Target store on the southwest side of the city told them Todd Franklin Curtis, 30, of Norman, filled a shopping cart with more than 20 boxes of Lego toys and other items Saturday, left the store to make a call on his cellphone and then came inside and left the store with the cart, The (Oklahoma City) Oklahoman reported Friday.

Curtis was stopped by a store employee and workers showed police surveillance photos from several area stores of a man matching Curtis' description taking Lego toys worth a total of about $10,000.

The photos depicted the man using a 2009 Ford Expedition, the same vehicle Curtis was driving Saturday.

Police said Curtis was released on bond and has not yet been charged.
