Harrisburg Police arrested a man suspected of being involved in two different home invasions, one 3:45 p.m. Sunday in Harrisburg and one 3:05 a.m. Monday in Carrier Mills.

The man in custody gave his name as Carl Edward Campbell, 52, 103 Karen Ann Lane, Carrier Mills, according to the jail log book. Sgt. Todd Cavender arrested the man 7:50 p.m. Monday on charges of possession of stolen property, home invasion, armed robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon and unlawful use of a weapon.

Harrisburg Police Chief Bob Smith said police are still investigating and have reason to believe the name the man gave may be false. Cavender stopped a vehicle matching the given description — small red sport-utility vehicle — and pursuant to the stop found items reported to have been stolen in the Carrier Mills home robbery of Terry Felty’s house. Two men entered Felty’s home with masks covering their faces, according to Carrier Mills Police Sgt. Bill Duncan. Felty was restrained and the men left with electronic items. Felty was unharmed.

Smith said police believe the same two men were responsible for the Harrisburg home invasion, though the man in custody had not yet been charged in that incident. He said police would conduct a photo line up Wednesday to see if a witness could identify the man. The Harrisburg incident involved the men entering a residence on the 100 block of East Raymond Street, holding a knife on an individual and taking cash, Smith said.

The second suspect has not been located.
