Police say the camera weighs more than 100 pounds and is specifically used for shooting arial shots.

"It's mounted on a helicopter and used to do arial shots," detective Ernesto Ford said while speaking with WAGA-TV.

Police say a laptop and headset were also stolen.

Ford says the department is now offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of the suspects or recovery of the equipment.
