CENTRE COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A man from Jamaica, New York, who allegedly has a warrant for attempted murder was found during a basic traffic stop on I-80 in Centre County Tuesday afternoon.
According to state police out of Rockview, 39-year-old Steven Campbell was arrested after a car he was in was pulled over on I-80 in Boggs Township around noon April 5.
What started as a traffic stop turned into much more after drugs and paraphernalia were found. The passenger in the car then provided troopers with a fake name in an apparent attempt to hide his identity. The man was later identified as Campbell.
Campbell was then found to have a warrant through the New York City Police Department for attempted murder and trafficking cocaine.
