SARASOTA (CBSMiami/AP) – The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office is trying to get to the bottom of a seaside stumper on Siesta Key.

On Tuesday, beachgoers found a 100-pound, 8-foot-tall Lego man on beach, but authorities don’t know who put it there or why.

“No Real Than You Are” was written on the fiberglass Lego man’s shirt. “Ego Leonard” and the number 8 were also on the man’s shirt.

Newspapers in the area report the name “Ego Leonard” is the name of a Netherlands artist, but it wasn’t immediately clear if that was a real name or if an artist was behind the work.

Legoland officials told the Sarasota Herald Tribune the Lego man was a counterfeit and is not endorsed by the company.

The giant Lego remains in the custody of the sheriff’s office until someone claims him.
