Madison man charged in explosives case

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- 27 News learned on Wednesday that the Madison Man police say was testing explosives in his home may have been making dangerous chemicals in that apartment for almost a year.

The new information came out in a criminal complaint filed on Wednesday afternoon. The document revealed that Campbell got a ticket from a building inspector last April for having chemicals in his Timberlake Village apartment. He was almost evicted.

The Dane County Court Commissioner Brian Asmus took the search results into account when weighing Campbell's danger to the public.

"What is alleged here is he has all the accoutrements to put together a fully functioning pipe bomb or explosive with fuses and timers and pipes and all the chemicals necessary to do that that's pretty frightening," said Asmus.

Bail was officially set at $100,000. The criminal complaint lists all the chemicals found at his home. They include flash powder, magnesium, various nitrates and even unknown suspected explosives.
