TMZ reports that the New York Police Department is investigating a burglary that went down at a "commercial location" in Astoria, Queens on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018.

Blade Runner actress Sean Young is wanted for questioning after surveillance video allegedly shows a burglary taking place that she is thought to have been a part of. We're told employees at the location turned surveillance footage over to cops that allegedly showed Young and a male breaking in and stealing the gear. It is reported that Young previously worked there, but was sacked about five months ago. The stolen items are valued at around $12,000. She has entered rehab twice and agreed to be a patient on VH1's "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew".

The 58-year-old Young is probably best know for her appearance as an android in the original "Blade Runner" in 1982.

She was originally cast as Vicki Vale in Tim Burton's first Batman movie, but after being injured during film rehearsals she was replaced with Kim Basinger.

The following year, Young spoke with Gawker about Darling, specifically addressing why she took on the role.

Despite her troubles, her IMDB shows that she has been acting regularly. Young denied the allegations in a 2007 interview with Entertainment Weekly, and the case was settled out of court, with Young awarded over $200,000 to cover her legal fees.
