However, unfortunate events have put the movie shooting at a halt. The cast and crew were shocked when they walked into the sets and saw their props and sets missing. Yes! You heard it right!! The film crew observed missing objects from the sets of the movie in Vermont.

Beetlejuice Statue Goes Missing

Vermont State Police are in constant runs to find out the thieves who have stolen the iconic 150-pound statue from the sets. The statue was significant to the movie and it must have been devastating for the crew to find it missing. Someone stole the statue and another artifact from the sets. The thieves also took away the lamppost with a distinctive pumpkin decoration from the sets.

Vermont police stated that they tried saying the statue’s name thrice but it didn’t show up. It was a reference thrown back into the movie. Must say, the Vermont police do have a good sense of humor!!

A security camera picked up unusual movement in their cameras on the night of 14th July. The accused must have stolen the artifacts between the 13th to 17th of July. The cameras identified a GMC pickup truck with no number plate. Eventually, the thieves picked up the lamp in the same truck.

The film crew suggested that the thieves must have taken away the artifacts from 5 pm on 13th July to 11 am on 17th July. However, the police have not arrested anyone for now.
