Hi Creshawnda,

Thank you for reaching out. Arizona Central reported at the time

"Detectives from the Phoenix Police Organized Commercial Crimes/Business and Economic Stability Team were notified by Toys "R" Us management in March about a large number of Lego playsets being stolen from multiple stores across the Valley."

If by "incidents" you mean the thefts, then it seems based on this article that some occurred in March 2014.

The arrests related to these thefts seem to have been made around the time this story was published, so possibly mid-August 2014.

Here's a link:https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/local/phoenix/2014/08/15/police-200000-legos-recovered-4-people-arrested-abrk/14143047/

Thank you for your help

Best,
Benoit
