It sounds like someone has been looting the set of Lipstick Jungle before it gets canceled.

A stage manager from the comedy-drama starring Brooke Shields, has been arrested and charged for allegedly stealing $30,000-worth of designer goodies from its wardrobe and trying to sell them on eBay.

Cops were called in to investigate after a French designer Sylvia Toledano, who had loaned the production a crystal-encrusted clutch bag, found it for sale online.

Investigators posing as buyers found 16 coats, bags and suits by Prada, Gucci, Fendi and Dolce & Gabbana in his apartment.

It seems Moreira -- who worked for a Brooklyn storage and production facility used by the show -- tried to offload a Burberry coat, plus the Toledano bag on the cops, saying they were going so cheap because they'd, "fallen off the back of a truck."

They arrested him Friday.

Perhaps Moreira helped himself to the pricey goods because he thought the show wouldn't be needing them any more.


The future of the NBC show, based on author Candace Bushnell's follow-up to Sex and the City, hangs in the balance.

All the taped episodes have now aired, and network execs are still deciding whether to commission more.
