LOS ANGELES - Police are investigating the disappearance of an expensive "Iron Man" suit from a Los Angeles movie prop storage facility.
Los Angeles police Officer Christopher No said Wednesday a police report was filed Tuesday and that the suit's estimated value is US$325,000.
The suit apparently went missing from the facility in the Pacoima neighbourhood between February and April 25.
KCBS-TV first reported the investigation and says the crimson-and-gold costume was used in the 2008 "Iron Man" film, which starred Robert Downey Jr.
