They'd book 'em, if they could catch 'em.
That's right, CBS' popular new television series, "Hawaii Five-O," is beset by a crime wave of its own, despite the presence of the legendary Steve McGarrett and his elite detective corps.
According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, a memo was issued recently to the cast and crew stating: "I am sorry to report that theft has become a serious problem on the set."
The memo, sent by production manager Jeff Downer, continued: "We are going to set up video surveillance cameras to help monitor this problem. If anyone is caught, they will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law."
Neither CBS nor the production staff would comment to the Star-Advertiser so it's not clear how extensive the problem is, or what the thieves have been stealing, or whether the real cops have been brought in.
But it is apparent that it's an inside job because the memo contained this passage: "As a reminder, we are an extended family, please let's not steal from one another."
Here's hoping they solve this before it becomes too big of an embarrassment.
