Police nab alleged burglar

Evidence collected at the scene of a burglary last week helped Trumbull Police catch a Bridgeport man they say is responsible.

Police responded to Cedar Crest Road Sept. 24  for a burglary and, through a forensic examination of the scene and evidence collection, Trumbull Detectives were able to collect valuable evidence, according to Deputy Chief Michael Harry. In cooperation with the West Haven Identification and Crime Scene Unit, Trumbull lead detective, Rocco Testi, was able to identify the perpetrator as Jahmari Zavon Campbell, 24 of Bridgeport, police said.

On Monday, The Trumbull Detective Bureau obtained a seach and seizure warrant for the suspect’s home and an arrest warrant. Campbell was charged with third-degree burglary and third-degree larceny.

Most of the stolen items were recovered at the scene of the search, police said.

Campbell is being held on $150,000 bond and will be arraigned Tuesday, if bond is not made.
