  • A San Mateo County sheriff's deputy plead no contest to stealing a trumpet and jacket from a member of a band playing at a hotel.

A former San Mateo County sheriff's deputy accused of stealing a jacket and trumpet from a band member playing a gig at a hotel plead no contest to the crime on Tuesday, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.

Brandon Hatt, 35, was reportedly shooting pool at the Aloft Hotel in Millbrae on Dec. 20, 2012, when after briefly leaving the hotel, he re-entered for a minute and was seen leaving again with a jacket and trumpet that belonged to a member of the band, prosecutors said. The trumpet is valued at $2,000.

Hatt plead no contest to the grand theft charges and was sentenced to 60 days in jail with one day of credit for time served and three years supervised probation.

He is to begin his sentence March 15 and the judge allowed his sentence to be served in San Diego County.

He is to abstain from alcohol and drugs and will not be allowed to carry a firearm or ammunition.

The trumpet was returned to the victim but Hatt will have to pay $533.29 in restitution. The victim's jacket was never recovered.
