Former SAP VP Faces 30-Day Jail Term For Lego Barcoding Scam

A former SAP exec entered a guilty plea in a California court this week to a felony commercial burglary charge stemming from a bizarre plot to steal Lego kits from Target stores by posting fraudulent bar codes on the toys.

Thomas Langenbach, a former vice president for enterprise software giant SAP, faces 30 days in jail and other penalties when he is sentenced Sept. 5.

Langenbach was arrested in May 2012 after he was caught putting fake bar codes with low prices on Lego kits in a Santa Clara, Calif., Target department store. Langenbach purchased the toys and then resold them online for hefty profits.
