LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has arrested a man in connection with the theft of computers, photographs and documents from director Steven Spielberg’s upcoming fourth “Indiana Jones” film.
The Tuesday afternoon arrest took place during a sting operation in West Hollywood, according to sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore.
He said officers posing as potential buyers arrested the man on suspicion of receiving stolen property. The goods had been advertised for sale through emails sent out to entertainment-gossip Web sites.
“He is on what is known as parole hold,” said Whitmore who declined to release the man’s name. “We believe there’s more people involved and don’t want to release the name until this plays out,” he added.
On September 24, the sheriff’s department was notified that some items had been taken from Spielberg’s production office on the Universal Pictures lot.
