What do thieves love more than lamp? How about lamp wires.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday that $300,000 worth of wiring in a building currently used for the Atlanta production of Anchorman: The Legend Continues, the sequel to 2004’s Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, was swiped.

The incident, reported on Dec. 27, has sparked a $5,000 reward for tips on who perpetrated the nefarious burglary.

Paramount did not return a request from EW for comment.
