XBIZ 360 - Jan. 14-16, Los Angeles

VAN NUYS, Calif. — A bukkake shoot where the participants were to be paid in cash was reportedly robbed by an armed man Wednesday night. The production was at Van Nuys Studios in Van Nuys, Calif.

"We usually pay the first 50 guys in cash," director Jim Powers told XBIZ. "So there's $3,750 in individual envelopes of $75. We had everybody on the set, watching the girl, posing for the box cover, when all of a sudden Johnny [production manager Johnny Thrust] comes in, saying, 'I've been robbed.'

"Apparently a man came in there, pulled the gun. Johnny thought he was kidding, but the guy put the gun in his face and said 'Give me the money. In the drawer. Now.' He knew exactly where it was."

Powers thinks one of the bukkake participants was involved in the robbery.

"It was an inside job, because he came at the perfect time," Powers said. "One of the guys in the bukkake was texting him, saying 'OK, come now.' It wasn't some guy off the street ripping the place off. It was well-planned. They knew exactly when everybody was in the studio.

"It was one of the bukkake guys that was involved. Not the one who did the robbery, he got one of his criminal friends to do it."

The bukkake went off as planned, and the participants will get paid by the production company later.

The suspect was described by Thrust as a light skinned male in his late twenties, mixed race, with short brown hair and a mustache, approximately six feet tall, wearing a Los Angeles Dodgers satin jacket over a bulletproof vest.

Powers is offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of the suspect. Information can be emailed to Powers at jp@mrfilth.com.
