Charges:

In August 2014 a resident reported to Upper Allen Police that he was the victim of an appliance repair scam that occurred in December 2013. Harner was identified as the person who took cash from the victim for “parts” and never returned. During the investigation, police learned that Harner, who was former Cumberland County resident, had been involved in similar crimes in Cumberland, Dauphin and York counties and there were multiple arrest warrants for him. Upper Allen Police obtained a warrant for Harner and were initially unsuccessful in locating him.

On February 27, 2015 Upper Allen Police devised a ruse to get Harner to come to a location for an appliance repair. When Harner arrived, officers were waiting and took him into custody without incident. Harner was transported to Cumberland County Prison and preliminary hearing will be scheduled for a later date.

If you have been the victim of a similar crime, police urge you to contact the law enforcement agency in the area where the crime occurred so it can be handled accordingly.
