HANOVER, York County — Hanover police are investigating two robberies that occurred in the borough in two days.

The most recent just after 9:30 Monday morning, when a black male suspect entered the Members First Federal Credit Union on the 1200 block of Carlisle Street. He handed the teller a note demanding money. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled south on Carlisle Street in a dark gray Chevrolet Venture minivan bearing Pennsylvania registration JZ8296. The vehicle may have been operated by a white female, police say.

The other robbery occurred shortly before midnight on Sunday, police say. A black male suspect entered a business on the 600 block of Broadway and demanded cash. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the suspect fled in a dark color SUV with four doors, a roof rack and running boards. A second unknown person was operating the vehicle, which was last observed traveling east toward Moul Avenue.
