Who steals from a show about people in prison?!
Well, someone decided to take such a chance on the set of the second season of Netflix hit series Orange is the New Black.
The dramedy, which tells the story of a group of women and their lives behind bars, fell victim to a real-life crime while filming in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
According to police, a thief reportedly snatched over $4K in cables, which were lying outside of the film set at Grace United Methodist Church on Seventh Avenue and St. John’s Place on Oct. 30.
Even as a private security guard was keeping watch, somebody managed to swipe more than $4,000 in five-wire banded cables from the set, police said. The area was open to the public and the cables were laying on the ground, according to the police report.
Although this doesn’t serve as good news for the cast and crew of OITNB, it definitely gives some much needed insight into the plot for fans itching to find out just what happens to Piper, Crazy Eyes, Alex and the rest of the gang.
Apparently, locals spotted Uzo Abuda (Crazy Eyes) and Jason Biggs (Larry) in the Brooklyn neighborhood. Leslie Albrect of DNAinfo reported:
“Orange is the New Black” has a connection to Park Slope. Piper Kerman, whose life story inspired the series, lives in the neighborhood and celebrated her release from prison with slices from Pino’s La Forchetta pizzeria on Seventh Avenue, she told New York magazine.
Season 2’s release date is yet to be announced, but it’ll be sometime next year.
