Wanted Felon Suspected of Residential Burglaries and Multiple Peeping/Prowling Incidents Arrested By Campbell Police

Campbell, CA – Campbell Police are currently investigating Bryan Joshua Castillo for indecent exposure and multiple peeping/prowling and residential burglary incidents.

Over the last several months, the Campbell Police Department received multiple reports of an unknown subject peeping into windows of bedrooms, entering residences, and prowling on properties in the late night and early morning hours. The homes were all occupied during these calls, and it appears the male was targeting bedrooms of young females. The Department received one report of a male subject exposing himself to two female victims in their driveway. These calls all occurred in the West Campbell Avenue/San Tomas Aquino Road neighborhood.

In August 2020, a juvenile female observed a male looking into her bedroom window. Officers located physical evidence that directly tied 30-year-old Bryan Joshua Castillo of San Bernardino County to the crime.

Castillo, a convicted felon, was found to be on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS) for a prior burglary out of San Bernardino County. During the investigation, Detectives contacted the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office and determined they had investigated Castillo for several similar crimes and held warrants for his arrest. Castillo was also wanted for violating the terms of his PRCS, and it appears he never reported to probation upon being released from prison. Castillo has no known ties to the Campbell community or the Bay Area.

Once Castillo was identified, Detectives and Officers actively worked the areas of the crimes to locate him. On Wednesday evening, at around 11:01 pm, another prowling was reported at a residence in the same neighborhood. Officers saw Castillo on a bicycle leaving the area of the prowling and attempted to stop him. Castillo fled from officers for and was eventually apprehended and taken into custody.

At the time of his arrest, Castillo was found in possession of suspected Methamphetamine, GHB, and LSD. Castillo provided identification purporting that it was him. The drivers license was determined to have been stolen during an un-reported residential burglary in the same neighborhood about a month ago.

Castillo was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail for the following charges: 529 PC, 148(a)91) PC, 11377 H&S, and 11351 H&S. Detectives are continuing to gather evidence in an effort to directly tie Castillo to the other incidents.

Chief Gary Berg said, “The crimes we are investigating in connection with Mr. Castillo are significant and had the possibility of escalating. Our officers’ and detectives’ work in this case underscores their commitment to the safety of our community. The evidence collection, saturated patrols, and neighborhood canvassing led to the successful arrest of this individual before he had the opportunity to do any more harm. I am very proud of the hard work our officers did in preventing these disturbing crimes from continuing.”
