COBBLE HILL — A film shoot for a comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro turned into a crime scene last week after about $15,000 worth of Apple products were stolen from set, according to police and the film’s production office.

More than a dozen iPads, iPhones, iPad Minis and MacBook Pros were swiped from the set of “The Intern” at Cheever Place and Degraw Street between 2 p.m. on Sept. 2 and 10 a.m. on Sept. 3, officials said.

The expensive devices were valued at more than $15,000 but it was not immediately clear whom they belonged to, according to police.

Film crews had been shooting all day on Sept. 2 and 3 in Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens, according to the Cobble Hill Association.  

The crime was “under investigation,” according to a woman who answered the phone at the film’s production office but declined to give her name.

The Warner Bros. flick follows the story of a 70-year-old widower, played by DeNiro, who becomes a senior intern for Hathaway’s character who runs an online fashion website, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The film is being written and directed by Nancy Meyers, who previously worked on screenplays the "Father of the Bride" movies, "The Parent Trap" and "It’s Complicated."

“The Intern” is scheduled to shoot in Cobble Hill again on Sept. 15, according to film permits posted in the neighborhood.

Other notable crimes in the 76th Precinct, according to police, include:

► A $650 red Sirrus bicycle was stolen from the 200-block of Clinton Street between 9 p.m. on Sept. 6 and 7 a.m. on Sept. 7. The thieves entered through the front door of a building and swiped the cycle from the hallway. There were no signs of forced entry, according to police.

► A 15-year-old boy was arrested on Sept. 2 for snatching a $30 basketball from another teen in Carroll Park earlier this month. The victim, who was also 15 years old, was accosted by a group of 20 attackers who punched him and took the basketball on Aug. 13 about 5:45 p.m.

The arrested teen was charged with robbery but was not immediately clear if the other attackers were adults or teens, police said.
