A San Fernando Valley man may end up in prison for stealing movie posters, including some for "The Hunger Games."

Christian Eric Stevens is charged with snagging more than 3,000 movie posters from bus stops to sell them online. Officials say the posters, worth an estimated $450,000, were stolen between June 3, 2011 and March 27, 2012.

He pleaded not guilty to grand theft on Thursday.

Police say they purchased a poster from the 36-year-old before discovering a trove of others in his home.

If convicted, Stevens could get five years in prison.
