BRISTOL - A city man has been convicted of stealing nearly $1,300 worth of property from a family member’s home.

Andrew Seyler, 29, pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree larceny during a hearing Tuesday in Bristol Superior Court.

Seyler, according to the warrant for his arrest, stole about $1,250 worth of property, including rare coins, jewelry and an electric guitar. The complainant, a family member related by marriage who reported the thefts to police in Feb. 15, showed officers security camera footage of Seyler taking things from his bedroom.

Police then found that Seyler had sold a number of things to area pawn shops. Some of the merchandise was recovered and identified as belonging to the victim.

The victim did not ask state prosecutors for restitution to be part of the plea deal. Instead, Seyler has been ordered to pay $1,250 to a victim services fund.

Seyler was sentenced to one year in prison, suspended, and a year of probation.
