Los Angeles County Sheriff's officers set up a sting operation to nab a man suspected of stealing laptop computers and hundreds of photos from the latest Indiana Jones movie last Tuesday. According to a Los Angeles Times account, authorities were contacted by the operators of several unnamed entertainment gossip websites, who told them that they had received emails from someone offering to sell images from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Sheriff's detectives then replied to the man's messages, saying they were interested in the photos and setting up a meeting at a West Hollywood hotel. The man who arrived -- and was promptly arrested on suspicion of receiving stolen property -- was 37-year-old Roderick Davis of Cerritos (who was also charged with violating his parole). A spokesman for the Sheriff's office said Wednesday that other people are involved in the theft."
