Campbell Duncan has been a police officer with the Campbell Police Department since 1996. During his time with Campbell PD, Campbell has worked a variety of assignments, investigations and duties. Some of these include, patrol, sexual assault investigations, the Santa Clara County S.A.F.E. Task Force, I.C.A.C. investigations, crime scene investigation, computer forensics, cellular phone investigations, call detail record analysis and geolocation investigation. Campbell was promoted to the rank of Agent in 2009 and from 2015-2018 was assigned to the Special Enforcement Division focusing mostly on residential burglaries. In 2016 Campbell was one of several people that worked with the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office to help to organize the Santa Clara County Burglary Investigators group, a collection of burglary investigators and district attorneys sharing information to identify and prosecute burglary crews. Campbell is currently assigned to patrol and is a member of HTCIA.


Residential burglaries have increasingly become a method for thieves and criminal street gangs to make money, steal cars and obtain firearms. Residential burglaries are difficult to investigate when suspects are not apprehended during the crime. Many burglars are repeat offenders that have learned how to leave little physical evidence by concealing their faces for video surveillance and making sure not to leave fingerprints. Investigation of many crimes increasingly have digital trails interwoven that may be the only leads to investigate or to solve the crimes.

This case will discuss a residential burglary with no helpful physical evidence but a digital trail that was left when one of the burglars stole a Sony PlayStation. Through following the digital trail from the Sony PlayStation, IP logs, data mining and examining and mapping cellular phone call detail records, Agent Duncan was ultimately able to identify the suspects and recover the victim’s stolen property. With the assistance of other burglary investigators and the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office through the Santa Clara County Burglary Investigators meetings, the suspects were tied to multiple residential burglaries and a police pursuit and were charged by obtaining a grand jury indictment.
