LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Eight people have pleaded not guilty to burglarizing the homes of vacationing Los Angeles Times subscribers.
The eight entered pleas Friday to 39 charges of burglary, receiving stolen property and conspiracy.
They remain jailed. Each faces 20 years or more in state prison if convicted.
Prosecutors contend that an office-machine repairman stole lists of Times subscribers who'd placed vacation holds on their subscriptions, passing them to burglars who hit at least 25 homes.
Authorities contend the ring stole about $1 million worth of electronics, collectibles, jewelry and other items from homes in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties.
Hundreds of items were discovered early this year in a West Covina storage locker.
