The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has made an arrest in the theft of several laptops and set photos from the set of the new Indiana Jones movie, reports pretty much everybody. But IESB.net is more forthcoming with the details, claiming the booty included "over 2,000 production stills, plenty of sensitive paperwork including a complete production budget breakdown, possibly the script from Indiana Jones 4 and multiple computers," and that everything was stolen from Steven Spielberg's Universal Studios office.

Also of note: IESB.net says the suspect was caught "with the help of a member of the online press that had been offered the stolen property." We're shocked, quite frankly, that any self-respecting movie blogger would do a thing like this, since spoiling movies as early and often as possible should be the official goal of anyone running a decent movie-news Website. Shame on you, anonymous tipster!
