Dylan Xavier Campana


Morro Bay police officers captured a 28-year-old attempted murder suspect at a home on Hill Street on Sunday.

On March 7, while working as a deck hand on a boat docked at a boatyard in Astoria, Oregon, Dylan Xavier Campana allegedly assaulted a fellow crew member. The victim is expected to survive his injuries.

After learning Campana had returned to the Central Coast, Astoria officers contacted the Morro Bay Police Department for assistance. Local officers, along with the San Luis Obispo Regional Swat Team, arrested Campana on Sunday and booked him in San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Campana is awaiting extradition to Oregon.

Don’t let the babyface fool you…

What the heck is going on along the Coastal Area? Reportedly there was a violent mob fight at a party in Los Osos on March 3 which spilled over to vandalism in Cambria. Karen, please report on this and what is happening along the Coastal area. What is Gibson doing to stop this violence?
