A film shoot included an unexpected crime scene Tuesday afternoon in North Beach, police said.
About 1:45 p.m., an open business in the 900 block of Battery Street was recording a commercial when the crew was spooked by a prowler, police said.
The victims were in a space at the rear of the establishment when an unknown suspect peeked through a doorway.
A man emerged from the set to find electronic equipment — including a television camera, microphones, a cable and cash — missing, police said.
The burglar, described only as a man in his 30s, fled the scene and has not been located by police.
