Hanover Police are investigating two separate robberies that occurred in the borough over the past two days.
One robbery was at a business in the borough, and the other one took place at a bank, and police are looking into the possibility the two are connected.
Bank robbery: Police said a black male suspect entered the Members First Federal Credit Union at 1221 Carlisle St., at about 9:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 7, and handed a teller a note demanding money.
After receiving money, the suspect fled south on Carlisle Street in a dark gray Chevrolet Venture with a Pennsylvania registration of JZF8296. Police say the vehicle was possibly driven by a white female.
The suspect is described as about 6-foot-2, with a muscular build. He has short black hair and appeared to be clean shaven, and police say he was wearing a gray T-shirt, camouflage shorts, sneakers, and white ankle-high socks.
The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, police said.
Business robbery: According to police, a black male suspect entered a business in the 600 block of Broadway just before midnight Sunday, Aug. 6, and demanded the employee open the cash register. After retrieving the money, the suspect left the scene in a dark-colored SUV, which had a roof rack and running boards, police said.
Another person was driving the vehicle, and it was last seen heading east in an unnamed alley toward Moul Avenue, police said.
The suspect is described as tall, and police say he was wearing a baseball cap, black glasses, a gray T-shirt, camouflage shorts, gray shoes, and white ankle-high socks.
Anyone with information on the robberies or suspects is asked to call police either through York County 911 or at (717) 637-5575.
