Ansonia Police Officer Mustafa Salahuddin will return to Superior Court in Derby Jan. 12 as the case of his alleged theft of a garden hose from police headquarters two years ago proceeds to trial.

Salahuddin, who has been on paid administrative leave since his July 2008 arrest, had a pre-trial conference Monday, the officer’s lawyer, Rob Serafinowicz, said.

“The situation hasn’t changed that much,” Serafinowicz said.

Salahuddin was charged with sixth-degree larceny after Ansonia police brought in state police to investigate the alleged crime.

The officer has maintained his innocence since his arrest. His lawyer has said Salahuddin was targeted because of run-ins with police department brass.

State Attorney Paul Gaetano acknowledged the date of the trial, but declined to elaborate on the case because it is a pending matter.
