Ex-con faces stolen property charge

By From page A3 | January 09, 2013

FAIRFIELD — An ex-con who has been sent off to prison five times in the past pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of possessing stolen property.

The stolen property is a 1995 Infiniti sedan that a Verdin Court resident left unattended and warming up last week on a cold morning. When the resident returned to the driveway, the Infiniti was gone. The next morning, a Fairfield police officer spotted the stolen Infiniti and got into a brief car chase that ended at a Wren Court home, where Richard A. Pillard, 44, was found hiding in the garage.

Pillard was ordered to return to court Jan. 22 for a probable cause hearing. Pillard, who told a judge that he was homeless, is in jail with bail set at $105,000.
