Man charged with theft of $200000 in movie posters
If you are going to become a collector, you should do it legally.
A man living in Los Angeles has been charged with stealing approximately $200,000 worth of movie posters from bus shelters between 2011 and 2012. Christian Eric Stevens (36) was accused of stealing over 3,000 movie posters between June 2011 and March 2012 and selling them online for more than $450,000.

CBS tipped off LAPD detectives who attempted to purchase a poster online. After acquiring a search warrant, Stevens’ house was searched to discover a stash of posters, many of which had a “not for resale” sticker on them. The LAPD has stated that Stevens had posters for practically every movie in the past two years and many for recent films such as The Hunger Games.

Stevens appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to one count of grand theft of personal property and receiving stolen property. If he is found guilty of all charges, Stevens could face a maximum of five years in prison.
