Producers of the Anchorman sequel have offered a $5,000 (£3,100) reward for information leading to the arrest of thieves who stole $300,000 (£187,500)-worth of computers and equipment from the film's Georgia production base over Christmas (12).

The Atlanta warehouse used to store the gear was raided on 27 December (12) and local police have launched an investigation.

It has emerged the thieves didn't target the site specifically but broke in as part of a carefully planned string of burglaries in the area.

A handwritten sign posted on the door of the warehouse facility offers up the reward.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues features returning castmates Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd and Steve Carell.
