Sarasota News Leader October 18, 2013 Page 105 Siesta Seen that show up out of nowhere," as Sheriff Tom Knight put it on the office's Facebook page last week. "Any guesses?" Knight added. It turns out that Sgt. Scott Osborne, leader of the office's Community Policing Station on Siesta Key, spilled the beans a few months ago. Strom is the person who handled the case of the 8-foot-tall "Legoman" that appeared on the beach early on the morning of Oct. 25, 2011. As it turned out, the 100-pound fiberglass creation was a publicity stunt related to the Sarasota Chalk Festival. It was linked to Dutch artist Leon Keer, whose team created an image in Burns Court depicting the Dutch artist Leon Keer's 'Legomen' army appeared during the 2011 Chalk Festival in downtown Sarasota.
