Two laptops actress Sean Young was accused of stealing from a film production company that had fired her were returned Tuesday, after the new director encouraged her to “turn yourself in to the police, who are looking for you.”

The two laptops producers said that they have been stolen from a New York studio of the “Charlie Boy” film suddenly at her Manhattan attorney’s office.

The 58-year-old star of the 1982 film “Blade Runner” told the New York Daily News that the producers had tried a publicity stunt for their film through the media hoopla about the missing laptops.

Timothy Hines, who took over from de Jong as a director, walked into the midtown Manhattan office with the laptops with the production plans that he called “irreplaceable.”

“We want all charges against her dropped,” he told The Associated Press.


A New York Police Department spokeswoman said that they had not been notified of the development and had no immediate comment relating to the investigation of the alleged theft. No charges were filed.

Young was fired a few months ago in the midst of a dispute with the producers.

She acknowledged that she had entered the studio in Queens last Thursday to retrieve her belongings and mistakenly took the computers instead of its own.

“There were no computers,” Hines said. “They had a computer we gave her, and she took that with her.”

Hines said they broke into the studio, but Young told the Daily News she had e-mail proof that they had permission from the owner of the building to enter.

Earlier Tuesday, Hines told the AP that the Young was the creation of a publicity stunt with the help of the equipment.

“This was her revenge on us,” the director concluded.
