GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A Nebraska corrections officer has resigned after police posted a video showing the theft of Legos from a Wal-Mart store.

Wal-Mart employees tell police they looked through surveillance footage after finding an empty Lego box Friday. They say a man accompanied by two small boys dumped the bricks into a diaper bag.

Grand Island police Capt. Dean Elliot says the man faces a misdemeanor theft by shoplifting charge. He says the case has been referred to the county attorney’s office. Elliot says the man turned himself in after images from the video were posted on the department’s Facebook page.

Hall County Clerk Marla Conley tells the Grand Island Independent (https://bit.ly/1qNgyL2 ) the 29-year-old officer resigned on Tuesday. She said he had worked at the jail since January 2009.
