JASPER — A Perry County man was booked into the Dubois County Security Center last week on an attempted burglary and attempted residential entry warrant.
The case against Christopher M. Campbell, 42, Cannelton, began April 7 when the Huntingburg Police Department was notified of a reported attempted burglary with a handgun, according to court documents.
A complainant reported Campbell came to his residence because he thought individuals he knew were there. The complainant said Campbell came to the back door with a handgun and began kicking the door. When the complainant opened the door, police reported, Campbell took what was described as a ready stance before ultimately leaving.
The investigation into the incident included a review of video surveillance footage, according to a police affidavit.
Police did not locate Campbell on the night of the incident.
The investigation resulted in a warrant being issued April 8 out of Dubois Circuit Court charging Campbell with Level 2 felony burglary or attempted burglary with a deadly weapon, Level 4 felony burglary or attempted burglary and Level 6 felony residential entry or attempted residential entry.
Campbell was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:56 p.m. Thursday, May 14, on the active warrant. During an initial hearing the next day, Campbell advised he would be hiring counsel. The court ordered him released on his own recognizance to Moderate Pretrial Monitoring with conditions that he have no contact with the complaining witness and that he not possess firearms.
His next court hearing was scheduled for June 23.
