CCTV footage shows the moment Sean Young and her son allegedly robbed a Queens production company and loaded items into her car.
The actress, known for her role in 1982 film Blade Runner, and her son Rio can be seen carrying a table and chairs out of the building before putting them into a black SUV on Thursday.
At one point, her son is seen walking out with a wrapped item and putting it in the trunk.
NYPD are now seeking the duo who they say is guilty of stealing two MacBook Pro laptops with a combined value of $12,000.
The troubled actress has been accused of breaking into the Astoria apartment, which was being used as a production office for a movie called ‘Charlie Boy,’ in which Young was briefly involved before being fired in June.
In an interview with DailyMail.com, Greg ‘The Greek’ Kritikos, who wrote the screenplay which is based on his own life, says Young was hired to direct and have a small role in the film.

The movie tells a redemption story that involves his struggles with weight— after losing 185lbs from his once obese 385lb frame—as well as his seven-year stretch of sobriety.
Young was set to play the ex-wife of the main character but was replaced by Kelly LeBrock.
But Kritikos said things with Young ‘unraveled and went downhill real fast.’
‘Basically, she hardly ever showed up for work but still managed to burn through $22,000 of the production budget,’ he told DailyMail.com.
‘Early on, she decided to hire a friend and former colleague, Timothy Hines [they had previously worked on a movie together that ended with Hines having to fire her], to work as a line producer. But their relationship soon soured because Sean wasn’t doing her job.’
In an interview with a visibly rattled Hines, who was standing in the doorway of the apartment that had allegedly been burgled by Young, he described her as ‘troubled, not the least of which is her problem with alcoholism.’
‘She would want to interview actors when we there was no infrastructure for that and wanted us to hire her son Rio [Lujan],’ he said.
‘I told her we couldn’t hire someone because of insurance liability issues.
‘She then threatened to fire me and said “You’re not going to fire my son,” even though he was never hired on in the first place.’

This is the production company that Young and her son allegedly broke into on Thursday afternoon. She allegedly ‘climbed through a hallway window onto the roof and walked over to the office’s bathroom window’ and gained access that way

In June, the film’s executive producer Dominic Martini had had enough of Young’s poor work habits, gave her the book and handed over the directing duties to Hines.
Then, on Thursday, wanting to remove some personal property from the apartment, Young came by the unit, a two-floor walk-up, accompanied by her son Rio, they claim.
But she wasn’t immediately able to gain access.
‘We told her she had to be supervised while in the production office,’ said Hines, who had the locks changed on the office two months ago.
‘Instead, she took matters into her own hands, climbed through a hallway window onto the roof and walked over to the office’s bathroom window, gaining access that way,’ he claimed.
‘In addition to taking her property, the table and some curtains, she also swiped the two valuable computers.’

Added Kritikos: ‘She had no ownership connection whatsoever to the computers. She never even used them and sadly she made her son an accomplice in this crime.’
‘She needs to get help, that’s the most important thing,’ he said, with Greg concurring, ‘if she were to willingly return the editing computers, which contained all the work on the film so far, we won’t press charges.’
‘Because of Sean’s actions production on the movie will be shut down for at least three weeks,’ Hines added.
‘It wouldn’t surprise me that instead of doing the right thing and returning the computers she ends up dumping them in the East River, anything to get rid of the evidence and to avoid being charged.
‘Fortunately, I backed up everything, but my editing work over the past one-and-a-half weeks is gone.’
Once a big star in the 1980s and 1990s having played the iconic role of Rachel in Blade Runner, and Ray Finkle in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, Young’s increasingly erratic behavior over the years has seen a dramatic fall from grace.
The NYPD confirmed to DailyMail.com that they are seeking Young and the other male suspect, but no arrests have yet been made.
A representative for Young did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

Young shot to fame in 1982 playing Harrison Ford’s ‘replicant’ love interest in the original Blade Runner movie and appeared to be headed towards a sparkling Hollywood career.
But years of alcoholism, bizarre behavior, and run-ins with the police have robbed her of those opportunities.
Her last roles consisted of a bit part on TNT’s The Alienist and costarring in budget horror movie flop Escape Room.
She did appear in the 2017 sequel Blade Runner 2049, but was only brought back digitally, through a touch of movie magic, as her younger self to play the ageless android.
She had been working in Queens until she was fired, when she decided to take the drastic action of burgling the store, according to police.
Young’s decline from celebrity began following her romance with Oscar-nominated actor James Woods in 1989.
The couple met on the set of The Boost and had a brief affair before Woods dumped her and returned to his fiancee.
He claimed that a furious Young sent him and his new girlfriend pictures of corpses and mutilated bodies, and even left a mutilated doll at his door as a reminder of his fiancée’s abortion, People reported at the time.
Woods had Young arrested for stalking and filed a $2 million harassment lawsuit against her, which was later settled out of court.
Young claimed the incident was a ‘misunderstanding.’
In another famous incident in 1992, she arrived at the Batman Returns set in a homemade Catwoman suit after she lost out on playing the part.
Years later, Young donned a cat suit for a skit on the Late Show with David Letterman. A clip showed her wearing the homemade suit, as she begged people for work, while screaming ‘I’m not crazy!’

Young, who now lives in Astoria, voluntarily went into rehab for treatment of an alcohol problem in January 2008, after she had struggled against addiction for many years.
The actress, who has all but dropped out of the celebrity scene, then had a run-in with the law in 2012 when she was arrested for allegedly slapping a security guard.
Young, who had posted photos of herself posing with a bevy of A-listers including Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, insisted at the time she was ‘sober’ and ‘extremely well behaved when a stupid security guard went postal on me’.
TMZ claimed the drama unraveled after Young tried to get into the Governor’s Ball post-Oscars party without a ticket. It is alleged she slapped a security guard after she returned to try and get in a second time and was led away by security.
Young was then arrested and taken away by police and booked for battery.
The incident was not her first issue at an Oscars after party. She tried to get into a Vanity Fair party by sneaking in behind Jennifer Aniston in 2006.
But she was escorted out by four guards when spotted by security.
Young said of that incident: ‘It was degrading. But when you have nothing to lose, it’s really not that big of a deal.’
The divorced mother-of-two has seen her career fade of late – to such an extent that she agreed to appear in the reality show Skating With The Stars in 2010. But sadly her comeback did not last long as she was eliminated in the second show of the ABC series in November after falling onto the ice twice.
She shot to fame in 1982 in the sci-fi thriller Blade Runner. She then starred in hit films including No Way Out and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
Young, of Louisville, Kentucky, also had roles in TV shows including One Tree Hill and more recently daytime show The Young and the Restless.
She married Robert Lujan in 1990 before divorcing him 12 years later in 2002 – but they had two boys together, named Quinn, 20, and Rio, 23. Both boys appeared in a few films as child actors.
Lujan and Young remarried in 2011.

Young last made headlines last year during the Me Too movement when she accused disgraced Miramax producer Harvey Weinstein of exposing himself to her.
She also accused Barbra Streisand of shaming her for going public with Warren Beatty sexual harassment allegations.
Young said that Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse by dozens of women, of exposing himself during the filming of 1992 movie Love Crimes.
‘I made a movie with Harvey Weinstein called Love Crimes, which didn’t end up being a good movie,’ she said, ‘but I personally experienced him pulling his you-know-what out of of his pants in order to shock me,’ she said during an appearance on radio program Dudley and Bob with Matt Show in October.
‘And my basic response was you know Harvey I don’t think you should be pulling that thing out it’s not very pretty and then leaving and never having another meeting with that guy again because it was like ‘what on earth?’.’
Young also claims that she was fired Warren Beatty’s 1990 critical bomb Dick Tracy after she turned down his advances. Beatty claimed Sean’s firing was a purely creative decision at the time.
And the Blade Runner star says that when she met Barbara Steisand when she auditioned for her 1996 movie, the music and film legend had attacked her for going to the press about her treatment by Beatty.
‘I auditioned for… The Mirror Has Two Faces I think it was. And when I went to my audition with her she said to me, ‘I think it’s disgusting that you talked to the press!”
‘And what I had said to the press was that I was harassed,’ Young explained. ‘That I was sexually harassed by Warren Beatty. And she told me she thought that was disgusting.’
‘And I said, ‘you think it’s disgusting?’ And she said ‘I was with Warren Beatty and I made my mouth fall off!’
Young claimed to have said to Streisand, who has long been rumored to have dated Beatty in 1969, ‘What am I the only actress who hasn’t slept with Warren Beatty in this town? I mean that can’t be true!’
A representative for Streisand told TMZ: ‘I have no memory of ever having interviewed Sean Young, and I do not condone harassment of women under any circumstances.’
