Palmyra man jailed in home invasion robbery

Posted: Updated:

State police have charged a Palmyra man in connection with a home invasion robbery where a woman and her 9-year-old son were held at gunpoint.

Eighteen-year-old Jacob Walsh was charged with burglary, robbery, criminal trespass, terroristic threats, unlawful restraint, theft, false imprisonment, simple assault, reckless endangerment, and loitering and prowling at night.

The charges stem from an incident in the early morning hours of December 11 at the Chesapeake Mobile Home Park in East Hanover Township, where police previously reported that four men wearing ski masks entered a home on Dallas Drive and held the woman and her son at gunpoint in the bedroom where they had been sleeping.

Police said the four men rummaged through cabinets and drawers for prescription drugs and money, but also asked for a specific person who was not home at the time. The woman and young boy were not harmed.

Walsh was being held in Dauphin County Prison on $50,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for April 22.
