On Jun19, 2013, this story reported that Neil D. Campbell pleaded guilty to the criminal charge of being a fugitive from justice. The story relied on a record of the Idaho Supreme Court Data Repository. In March 2015, the record was shown to be in error. The ISCDR corrected the record the same month by deleting both the charge and plea. Both were deleted from this story as well.
A 65-year-old Sun Valley man remained incarcerated in the Blaine County jail on Tuesday awaiting extradition to California where he faces multiple charges of grand theft.
Sun Valley Assistant Police Chief Mike Crawford said Monday that Neil D. Campbell was arrested on June 7 on a $10 million bond warrant from Los Angeles County. Crawford said the warrant charges Campbell with 140 counts of grand theft for allegedly fraudulently obtaining $28 million.
Crawford said Campbell had been living in the area for about three years. His last residence was at The Summit condominium complex in Elkhorn Village.
Crawford said Sun Valley police were notified by Los Angeles County authorities in May that Campbell might be in the area. Once he was located, three investigators from the Los Angeles County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office and six U.S. marshals were assisted by Sun Valley police in making the arrest.
Crawford said Campbell was taken into custody without incident near the post office in Elkhorn Village.
At an initial court appearance on June 10 in Blaine County Magistrate Court, Campbell waived extradition and an order of extradition was issued by Judge R. Ted Israel.
