Mel Gibson -- Someone Stole My Beaver!

1/28/2011 4:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mel Gibson's mailbox was broken into Wednesday ... and cops are now on the hunt for a beaver.

Mel Gibson Beaver Stolen

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Summit Entertainment -- which is distributing Mel's upcoming movie, "The Beaver" -- gave Mel the final cut of the movie on DVD.  Mel screened it at his home, and at 10:45 AM put the DVD in his mailbox so a courier could pick it up and return it to Summit.

We're told the courier showed up at 2:30 PM Wednesday, and the DVD was missing.

The L.A. County Sheriff's Department is now on the case.  But here's the sad part -- It's being investigated as a petty theft.

But don't worry Mel -- it's petty theft because of the value of the DVD.  We're sure the movie is awesome.

Thanks fuddyduddy, I hadn't seen it and I read the posts all night last night until I went to bed. Didn't get a chance to comment and didn't want to jump in and say something that wasn't pertinent. Better to read the informative posts and go from there..... :=)

You're welcome, GreenEyes. I know there are differences of opinion here on this board, but there is no need to exclude information just because someone doesn't like it. They need to scroll on by it if they don't like it.

I like your name BTW. Reminds me of a song from the 70's -- Green Eyed Lady! :)

Just so everyone knows where I stand regarding this Body Guard group with Kris Herzog and his book involving Mel. I would never buy any book you may write yet will happily pay to go see Mel's possibly pirated movie more than once.

That's because they have been going to the same courthouse since June 2010, and it is well known where THE COURT HOUSE is that they go to, even though there are a number of court houses in LA. No different. If TMZ would just say there will be a deposition this month, and not state a date, then yes--I would agree that it's different, but it's not.

Why is Chris Herzog thanking me????

I have NEVER send any e-mail or
made a comment in support of him.

When he came out in "support" of Mel,
the only comment I posted was -

"The truth will set you free Herzog."

I do not trust this guy, I think he is
an oportunist, and just because I support Mel
and he came over to Mel's side,
DOES NOT MEAN that I support Herzog.

I DON'T.

TMZg, you're growing lamer in your old age. That's not much of an insult.

So it is "petty theft" if a thief steals from your mailbox, but it is a felony if a thief steals from the United States post office? I don't get it. People can go around stealing from other people's mail and the Sheriff calls it "petty theft"?

I'm pretty sure that it's just TMZ calling it a petty theft. YOU know they had to throw in the zinger, and that was the best htey had. pfft.


Fud: too many blonde bombos? LOL!

yeah, but the lies list is by request most of the time, and funny. The KH post just endangers Mel. When TMZ follows them into a court house--by the time the clip hits the air--they are safe inside and no one is sure when they'll be out.

Actually that could probably be raised to something above petty theft. While the physical DVD is only worth a couple dollars, an unreleased copy of a movie is worth a whole lot more. It has to be an inside job since how else would someone know what was in there.

I bet it appears on bit torrent in no time!

TMZg: here's a clue: don't make the effort then. (btw, that comment was as lame as your other.)

if it was 'to be posted' as mail, it would be a felony

funny that a netflix dvd would be a felony, but a Gibson original is worth the same as his ongoing career -- petty theft

Sorry Fud. I'm just concerned about Mel, that's all. I would bet the thing gets delayed yet again because of KH posts. I think that may be the wholeintent of his psots. Mel's rights are first and foremost in my mind and they get trompled on the most by those exploiting him. Just makes me a bit sore.

See: look at that last comment of TMZgs. That's what I mean about his insults at Mel, incessant, hateful and passionately so. He acts as if he has a personal vendetta against Mel. Has to be a reason for it.

Check Charlie Sheen's garage, he is busy collecting all the beavers in town. Speaking of disgusting Charlie, why is he not being arrested for having mountains of coke to share with his porn lovelys?
