Assistant State's Attorney Laura Casciano requested that Pillar remain at the detention center without bail because of his history with the law.

Pillar was found guilty of robbery in 2009 and sentenced to serve jail time on weekends and probation. He was also found guilty of first-degree burglary in 2006 and sentenced to one year and one day of jail time.

He has pending charges of driving while impaired in Baltimore County with a violation date of Nov. 16.

Harford County District Court Judge Mimi Cooper upheld Casciano's request and decided to hold him without bail.
