Actors in ski masks were caught appearing to break into a multi-family residential unit in Fullerton, but police later learned it was part of a film shoot, authorities said.
At about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27, police received multiple calls of a possible home-invasion robbery in the 200 block of East Orangefair Mall, Fullerton Sgt. Ryan O’Neil said.
Officers discovered two males in ski masks and what appeared to be guns. But officers later identified the props and learned from the homeowner that no crime had occurred, O’Neil said.
Witnesses said multiple people were detained during an investigation.
Because the film shoot involved a private home, police were not notified of the production, the sergeant said.
A person associated with the film shoot told a videographer that they were filming a robbery scene for a Hulu production.
