Hummelstown man who took keys, stole car at Hardee’s gets 25 to 50 years in state prison

Posted

A Hummelstown man convicted of stealing a car from a woman while she was eating at Hardee’s on West Main Street in Middletown in November 2016 will spend a long time in prison.

Alfred Charles Carrera II, 45, was sentenced to 25 to 50 years in state prison Jan. 31 by Dauphin County Judge Deborah E. Curcillo.

Carrera was also sentenced to serve five years of probation after he is released.

He received credit for having been behind bars from Nov. 16, 2016, to Jan. 31.

A Dauphin County jury Dec. 5 found Carrera guilty of robbery of a motor vehicle, theft by unlawful taking, and making terroristic threats. The theft by unlawful taking charge was withdrawn at the time of sentencing, according to online court records.

Carrera was facing a mandatory sentence of at least 25 years in state prison, as the Nov. 13, 2016 carjacking at Hardee’s was his third conviction for a violent crime following two earlier robbery convictions.

According to police reports, Carrera stole the Dodge Durango by taking the owner’s keys and wallet as the woman was sitting at a table eating in the restaurant.

Carrera was arrested three days later, on Nov. 16,, following a high-speed chase from Penbrook to Swatara Township.
