Latin Kings gang member known as "King Jake" was charged Tuesday with the October home invasion robbery

09:50 |

Latin Kings gang member known as "King Jake" was charged Tuesday with the October home invasion robbery of several Lehigh University students, police said.

Miguel Angel Estrada, of Allentown, pointed a semi-automatic pistol at two students on Oct. 26 as they sat on the front porch of their home in the 400 block of Filmore Street, Bethlehem police said. Estrada was with a second man who was carrying a baseball bat, police said.

Estrada and the other man forced the students into their home where there were two other students. Greg Turcotte, 21, Kevin Jones, 21, Brandon McGaher, 21, and Aaron Swanely, 20, were robbed in the home. The man with the bat struck Jones in the hip for failing to keep his hands in the air, police said.

Estrada ordered the students to empty their pockets, and Estrada and the other man stole keys, a wallet and even tried to steal a car, but left when the car would not start, police said.

Police said they found drugs and drug paraphernalia in the home. Jones was later charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to court records, and in April was accepted into the county's accelerated rehabilitative disposition program.

Police located Estrada on Tuesday at a home in the 400 block of Green Street in Allentown, according to a news release and was apprehended after a short foot chase.
