BERMUDA, Italy (AP) Italian police have arrested two people after authorities found bricks in the rubble of a brick factory in southern Italy that used to be the home of a hobbit-themed restaurant.
Police spokesman Luigi Cattani said the two suspects are being held in a regional police station for questioning.
Police believe the bricks were used to make the restaurant.
The site of the Hobbits’ Pizza restaurant, in Bologna, Italy.
Authorities said the bricks belonged to the restaurant in the town of Bolognese, a few miles south of Rome.
Authorities say the restaurant was closed down last year because of a fire, but reopened last year after the restaurant’s owners filed a lawsuit against the city and the owners of the building.
The owners of Hobbits Pizza, the owner of the Bolognas Brick Factory, filed a legal complaint against the Italian city and said the building is in danger because of the fire.
