UPDATE: Rusty Edward Sellner pleaded no contest to one count of first-degree residential burglary on Feb. 11, 2015. Per the L.A. County District Attorney's Office, he is expected to be sentenced on April 1 to two years in prison.

Maybe Miley Cyrus needs a bigger fence.

A 22-year-old man pleaded not guilty yesterday to breaking into the singer's Toluca Lake, Calif., home on Dec. 16 and making off with a bunch of stuff that belonged to Miley and her brother.

Rusty Edward Sellner is charged with one felony count apiece of first-degree residential burglary, receiving stolen property and grand theft, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, which did not detail what was allegedly stolen.

This incident is not to be confused, meanwhile, with the May 30 burglary at Miley's during which thieves drove off in her Maserati Quattroporte with a bunch of her jewelry, or the 2013 break-in the day before her 21st birthday

There was no word as to whether or not Miley was at home at the time of the alleged Dec. 16 burglary, but her Instagram suggests that she was out of town. She shared a pic of herself picking up some "gas station swag" and hashtagged another pic "#offthemap."

She was not at the house when the other two break-ins occurred.

Per the D.A., Sellner has two prior convictions in Ventura County for burglary and evading arrest, and he is facing a maximum sentence of seven years and eight months in prison if convicted on all charges in this case.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 20.
