At 0341 hours on 2 August 2011 an alerted Swatara Township police officer on patrol surprised 3 individuals during the commission of a burglary at Harris TV and Appliance 385 Eastern Drive Harrisburg, PA 17111 after he heard the audible alarm sounding from the business. Our officer responded on foot from the nearby location where he was on patrol. A foot pursuit ensued and all three eluded capture initially. Approximately 30 minutes later one of the individuals was taken into custody and arrested after he was seen by a police officer emerging from a wooded location near Rupp Hill Road.
The individual was identified as Gregory L. Davis of North Payson Street Baltimore, MD. B/M/age 20. He was charged with the following crimes: 903(a)(1) Criminal Conspiracy, 3502-A Burglary, 3925-A Receiving Stolen Property, 5126-A Flight to Avoid Apprehension, and 3934-A Theft from a Motor Vehicle. He was arraigned before MDJ Michael Smith and bail was set at $75,000 and was lodged in Dauphin County Prison.
As a result of the investigation, the suspects vehicle a blue Ford Econoline E250 Panel van used during the commission of the crime was impounded and a search warrant was obtained to search its contents. As a result of the search our officers recovered 2 flat screen televisions which were the property of Harris TV. Police officers also seized various tools from inside the van which we believe were used as instruments of crime.
These suspects also broke into two vehicles owned by Harris TV and it is from these vehicles that they removed the two televisions.
Entry was gained into the business by the burglars by cutting through the wall of the business.
This is an on-going investigation and anyone with information on the other two suspects is urged to contact the Swatara Township Police at 717-564-2550.
