Police in Atlanta, Georgia have launched an investigation into a burglary on the set of the Anchorman sequel late last month (Dec12).
Thieves broke into a warehouse where director Adam MCKay is shooting Anchorman: The Legend Continues and stripped the building of wiring and computers, costing $300,000 (£187,500).
The crime is one of several similar incidents in the area, which cops are currently investigating.
The upcoming comedy, a follow up to 2004's hit film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, will feature Will Ferrell reprising his role as bumbling newscaster Ron Burgundy, alongside returning co-stars Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and Christina Applegate.
It is due for release in December (13).
