Police: Man Threatened to Used Shotgun at Greystone Drive Home

Southington police said a Lombardo Court man and his wife showed up to the home intoxicated then demanded money they said was owed to them.

A Lombardo Court couple is facing various charges after police said they demanded money owed to them before the husband punched through a window and threatened to use a shotgun to collect the debt.

Officers responded to the Greystone Drive home just after midnight on Sunday morning to find Brandon and Jody Campbell, of 48 Lombardo Court, in front of the house. Police said Tuesday that the officers discovered a broken window to the right of the doorway and watched as Brandon Campbell tossed something into the bushes near the house.

“Witnesses told officers that Jody Campbell showed up at the home drunk and began yelling, demanding money she said was owed for a previous business transaction,” Sgt. Lowell DePalma said. “Jody refused to leave and Brandon (Campbell) showed up with a shotgun shortly after.”

Both were taken into custody without further incident after police arrived, according to the arrest report. No one was injured in the incident.

Jody Campbell, 21, is facing charges of second-degree breach of peace and first-degree criminal trespassing. Brandon Campbell, 28, is facing charges of possession of narcotics, possession of drug paraphernalia, third-degree criminal mischief, second-degree breach of peace, second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree threatening and carrying a dangerous weapon.

Both were released after posting bond and are due in Bristol Superior Court on April 30, according to police records.

When officers first arrived at the home, they received conflicting stories and Brandon Campbell denied ever having a gun. Witnesses at the gathering told police not only did he have a gun, but that he had punched the window, causing the molding to break and the glass to fall out just before police arrived.

Police called for assistance and canines Roy and Damon were taken to the scene where they conducted a search, DePalma said.

Roy found a pistol-grip shotgun tucked into the bushes outside of the home, the police report said, and Damon discovered a five dollar bill and straw, both which tested positive for cocaine, as well as an unidentified blue pill.

The couple told police they were owed money for "a business deal," but the report did not say what that alleged transaction was.
