Transaction on Stolen Card Leads Police to Burglary Suspect

A large purchase made using a stolen credit card led police to a 35-year old man suspected of breaking into a home in the 14000 block of Encantada Avenue and stealing items from the homeowner.

It was around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when the homeowner called police to report that her house had been burglarized. The victim told police that she woke to find her garage door open, as well as the doors to her vehicle and doors entering her home. She said her property had been rummaged through, and several items had been stolen, including a handgun.

When the homeowner called to report her credit card stolen, the bank told her that the card had just been used to make a large purchase at the Walmart in Flour Bluff. Police followed up on that information and were able to obtain surveillance footage of the suspect making the purchase at Walmart.

After identifying the suspect as 35-year old Jason Lee Campbell, police managed to track him down to a motel in the 9400 block of SPID. They found him there along with all of the items that had been stolen from the home on Encantada Street.

Campbell was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation, theft of a firearm, credit card abuse and burglary of a motor vehicle.
