3 get prison for home invasion robbery in Grantville

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Three Lebanon County men have been sentenced to prison for their roles in a 2012 home invasion robbery in Grantville.

Arvard Brown Jr., 25, of Campbelltown; Todd Kline, 26, of Palmyra; and Kyle Mayer, 26, of Lebanon, pleaded guilty Friday in Dauphin County Court to burglary, robbery, theft, and related charges. Each received a sentence of 5-10 years in state prison followed by 5 years of probation, according to District Attorney Ed Marsico’s office.

A fourth defendant, 21-year-old Jacob Walsh of Palmyra, pleaded guilty earlier in the week and was sentenced to 3-6 years in state prison.

Authorities said the four men wore masks and had guns when they entered the home of a woman and her 9-year-old son as they slept. One of the gunmen held the victims in their bed while the home was ransacked.
