Santa Clara County prosecutors Monday charged Thomas Langenbach of San Carlos with four counts of burglary in connection with the alleged thefts at multiple Target stores. He is set to be arraigned on Tuesday.
Authorities say Langenbach covered over the original bar codes with his own bar code stickers to get a cheaper price. They say he made thousands of dollars selling the pilfered sets of colorful toy bricks on eBay.
Langenbach works for German software giant SAP. His LinkedIn profile lists him as a vice president in a Northern California division. Attempts to reach Langenbach, who is free on bail, were unsuccessful.
