LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Los Angeles County prosecutors have charged a San Fernando Valley man with stealing more than 3,000 movie posters worth more than $450,000, including posters for "The Hunger Games."
The Los Angeles Times says Christian Eric Stevens snagged the posters from bus shelters to sell them online. He pleaded not guilty Thursday to one count each of grand theft and receiving stolen property.
Los Angeles police say they purchased a poster online from the 36-year-old Stevens before discovering a trove of posters stamped "not for resale" at his home. The thefts allegedly occurred in the San Fernando Valley from June 2011 until this week.
Stevens is due to appear in court on April 9. He faces a maximum of five years in prison if convicted.
