After questioning the suspect was lodged in the Dauphin County Prison on a Dauphin County Parole Detainer for parole violations where he remains as of today.

The Swatara Township Police Department urges all citizens to practice good personal safety habits when walking, running, or biking in secluded areas. The practice of routine random Police bicycle and foot patrols will continue on Swatara Township’s portion of the Harrisburg Greenbelt.
Swatara Township Police are seeking assistance in locating an individual wanted in questioning of suspicious activity along the Harrisburg Greenbelt. On 4/24/13 around 5:15 p.m. a female was walking her dog on the Greenbelt between S 28th Street and S 19th Street when a dark skinned black or Hispanic male, around 5’10″, husky build, mid to late twenties, jumped out of the woods at her. The male was wearing a sky blue polo with thin white stripes, and tan colored khaki cargo shorts with sneakers. It has been reported that the male jumped out of the woods at two other females. The male was seen riding a bicycle but was on foot when these events took place. Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to call Swatara Police at 717-564-2550.
At 1:27 AM on September 2nd, 2012, Swatara Township Police were dispatched to 701 Hamilton Circle for a suspicious male. A neighbor had witnessed the individual trying to open the back door of the residence, and watched as he walked around to the front of the home. The neighbor saw the male trying the front door, and watched as he eventually opened the door and walked inside. The neighbor called for police.
Officers established a perimeter and attempted to make contact with the male, who they believed was still inside of the residence. Harrisburg City Police responded to assist with a K-9 unit, and the front door to the home was forcibly opened by officers.
When the door was opened, officers encountered the male in question, who immediately surrendered. He was taken into custody and identified as Joel Adam Borrelli, a 39-year-old resident of 205 Hamilton Circle. The home was otherwise unoccupied. Borrelli cooperated with the officers, and admitted to burglarizing the home. He was charged with one count of Burglary, and arraigned at night court. Borrelli was committed to Dauphin County Prison in lieu of $10,000 bail.
The Swatara Township Police Department would like to extend it’s thanks to the Harrisburg Bureau of Police for their assistance.
