Campbell is being held in Aurora Detention Center on bail of $ 1 million.

The second occurred at 4600 blocks in the South Pagosa Circle around 4:45 am on January 7. A police officer who responded to reports of bullets fired in the area “discovered an explosive device that exploded.” One house was damaged.
According to police, no one was injured in either blast.
The case was investigated in collaboration with various local and federal agencies, including the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
