The man was playing a robber, wearing a mask and carrying a prop gun, when he was approached by officers in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

Montgomery County Movies thanked the police force for the “hasty response” in a statement on the studio Facebook page.

“We’re such a small company, we’ve been filming three to four years and we’ve just never thought about it,” the studio’s owner Philip Demoret told WLFI. “We just went in there and did what we normally do.”
