Campbell man charged with criminal trespassing


A 49-year-old Regent Street man will answer to a criminal trespassing charge at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Campbell Municipal Court.

On Friday, city police issued a warrant for the arrest of Anthony Koulianos after learning that he had trespassed at Campbell Elementary-Middle School on April 29 — an action that violates the guidelines outlined in a March 21 memo from Matthew Bowen, superintendent of Campbell City Schools.

In the memo, Bowen states that he has received several "complaints from school personnel regarding [Koulianos'] actions," including "a telephone call made to the central office in which Mr. Koulianos used profanity and made threatening remarks about a school employee."

Per the memo, Koulianos, the parent of a student in the district, is not permitted to enter school district facilities without an appointment scheduled through a district administrator; when entering a facility for such an appointment, he must immediately report to the office area.

In addition, the memo details that Koulianos will not talk to school personnel using profanity or in a threatening manner in person or via telephone, and will not be argumentative with school officials or disregard their requests.

His "failure to follow these guidelines will cause school officials to consider legal action against him," the memo explains.

An April 1 letter from Campbell Police Chief Drew Rauzan explains that if Koulianos fails to comply with the district's guidelines, he will be arrested for criminal trespassing; no further warnings will be given.

"Please comply with the district's demands so that we can avoid an unfortunate situation," Rauzan writes.

Koulianos turned himself in to the Campbell Police Department at about 9:30 a.m. Saturday. He was issued a cash bond of $75, which he posted.
