Shaquille Burnette


Police are looking for a Harrisburg man wanted in connection with a home invasion and robbery in Cumberland County on Nov. 5.

Shaquille Burnette, 20, is facing numerous charges including robbery, criminal conspiracy, theft by unlawful taking, terroristic threats and simple assault.

The incident happened in early November 2013 at the Geneva Greens apartment along Geneva Drive in Upper Allen Township.

Police say Burnette and another man, identified as 31-year-old Justin Matthews, held a group of people at gunpoint during a robbery and home invasion.

According to police reports, the victims were held at gunpoint for approximately 30-60 minutes. During that time they were forced to contact other family members to come to the apartment, who were then also held at gunpoint until the men finished the robbery, police said.

Some of the stolen items included a laptop, jewelry and cash.

Matthews, of Philadelphia, was arrested in connection with the crime on Dec. 12, investigators said.

Burnette remains at large and a warrant has been issued for his arrest, police said.

Anyone with information on Burnette’s whereabouts is asked to call the Upper Allen Police at 717-238-9676.
