A Hazel Green man who is believed to have attempted a burglary on Platteville’s southwest side and was involved in a hit-and-run crash April 10 was arrested in Cedar Rapids last week.

Jeffrey D. Campbell, 34, is in the Grant County Jail on a Probation & Parole hold after he was arrested in Cedar Rapids Friday.

Charges are pending in connection with an attempted burglary of a Reddy Drive house April 10 around 8:40 a.m.

Campbell also has been cited for operating without a valid license causing injury to another person, operating without a valid license causing property damage, improper parking on a roadway, operating a motor vehicle without insurance, failure to notify police of an accident, reckless driving endangering safety, unreasonable and imprudent speed, operating without a valid driver’s license, operating left of center, failure to stop at a stop signs, and a violation of an accident report requirement.

The operating-causing-injury citation carries with it bond of $6,437.50. The operating-causing-damage citation carries with it bond of $1,397.50.

Police were called to a Reddy Drive residence April 10 around 8:40 a.m. on a report that someone had tried to enter a house. A police officer tried to talk to the owner of a parked car in the area, but the driver sped off, according to police.

The car then hit an occupied vehicle at the intersection of West Main Street and Elm Street, and the car continued west until it became inoperable at West Main Street and Washington Street, according to police.

As a precaution, police asked Westview Elementary School to lock down. The lockdown ended one half-hour later, according to a Platteville School District email.

Campbell is on extended supervision after he pleaded guilty to a Jefferson County burglary charge in April 2011. He served one year in prison, according to court records.
