BEAVERTON, OR (KPTV) -

Police arrested a suspect in the theft of a prized 'Star Wars' Lego set from a Beaverton store.

The theft, which was recorded on surveillance cameras, happened at Bricks & Minifigs in the Cedar Hills Mall in Beaverton on Saturday.

Police said a man walked into the store and stole an Ultimate Collector Series R2-D2 Lego set that sells for more than $400.

Beaverton police said the department received a tip Tuesday from someone who had seen the surveillance images on the news.

That tip led officers to Michael Allen Shultz, 43, of Beaverton.

Shultz was arrested and charged with second-degree theft.

Police recovered the stolen R2-D2 Lego set, which was undamaged.
