London: Actor Rupert Grint made sure not to steal anything from the sets of Harry Potter this time when the filming wrapped – because last time he was caught red handed while taking a prop home as a memento.

Shooting on the final instalment in the wizard franchise, ‘Harry Potter’ and the ‘Deathly Hallows: Part II’ has been completed in London, bringing the franchise to an end after more than a decade.

Grint admitted that he wanted to take away a souvenir, but feared movie bosses would find out after he was previously caught lifting a fake dragon`s egg.

"I took the golden egg that was in the fourth film - a dragon egg. Apparently it was worth a few thousand dollars. I put it in a pillowcase, it was with (onscreen brother) James Oliver, it was a joint effort. But they tracked it down and got it off us.” The Daily Star quoted him as saying.

"A wand I think would be nice to keep. They don`t really like things going away from the set,” he added.
