CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man convicted in a pair of 2006 home invasion robberies was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court to 6 1/2 to 15 years in state prison.

Kyle Eugene Gordon, 19, of 4350 Pine Road, was ordered by Judge Carol Van Horn to pay $29,681 in restitution to his victims, along with $600 in fines on two counts of robbery. Gordon entered no- contest pleas to the charges on Nov. 8, according to court records.

An accomplice, Gerard Davis, 21, of Chambersburg, was sentenced in October to eight to 16 years in prison, according to court records.

On June 29, 2006, Gordon and Davis, one of them armed with a knife, entered a home in the 200 block of Hawbaker Avenue in Waynesboro, Pa., Waynesboro police said. A boy in the house had his hands tied with a cut telephone wire, was hog-tied with a cable television wire and had a sock stuffed in his mouth while the men broke into a gun cabinet and stole two pistols, police said.

Hunting knives, about $300 in old coins and a cell phone also were stolen, police said.

On the night of Aug. 1, two men forced their way into the home of David Jencks of 2085 Fort Loudon Road in Peters Township, Pennsylvania State Police said. One was armed with a rifle and the other a knife, and they demanded money, police said.

Jencks struggled with one of the men, was forced to the floor and was hit with the rifle, police said. Jencks got up and pushed the robber with the knife into the other robber, both of whom then fell out the door, police said.

Gordon and Davis were taken into custody at a home in Waynesboro, police said.
