LOS ANGELES (AP) - A convicted burglar charged with breaking into the Los Angeles home of Miley Cyrus has pleaded not guilty to felony charges.

Rusty Sellner entered pleas Thursday to burglary, receiving stolen property and grand theft. He could face seven years and eight months in prison if convicted.

Sellner was arrested Monday.

Prosecutors say he broke into the Toluca Lake home Dec. 16 and stole a large amount of property belonging to Cyrus and her brother.

Sellner has previous convictions for burglary and evading arrest.

This is the second burglary for Cyrus in less than a year. In May, thieves broke into a San Fernando Valley home she owned and took clothes, purses, jewelry and a 2014 Maserati that was later abandoned.

An Arizona couple went to prison for that break-in.
