On November 16th at approximately 4:40PM, Boca Raton Police Department was contacted by Lynn University’s campus security about a suspicious incident. According to police reports, Boca Raton Police Department responded to assist the security guards at Lynn University who claim they searched a dorm and observed a “large gallon bag” of marijuana. It was at this time that the four individuals in the room were resisting security causing the need for the Boca Raton Police Department to respond.

When the first BRPD officer responded, he was briefed of the situation by the security officers. The security chief informed the responding officer that one of the individuals does not reside in the room and they needed his assistance in identifying him. The responding officer was waiting for backup when the individual, Joshua Campo, shoved the officer and then ran down the hall away from the officer. The officer pursued Campo and was able to take him to the ground. It is reported that Campo offered a significant amount of resistance including tensing and bracing. With the help of the security officers, the responding BRPD officers were then able to handcuff Campo. Due to Campo’s active efforts in resisting arrest, two BRPD officers received minor injuries while affecting the arrest.

A search of the backpack Campo was wearing provided the following:

    • Luger 9MM Ammunition
    • Handgun magazine
    • Black/Tan Polymer80 9MM Handgun equipped with a 31 round magazine (unloaded)
