Hanover police announce reward in bank robbery

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in a Hanover bank robbery this week, according to police.

Hanover police announced the reward Friday in the robbery of the PNC Bank at 880 Carlisle Street.

The robber handed a note demanding money to a teller shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday.

He was described as 5’8” to 5’9” tall, 180-200 pounds, with a brown beard and mustache.

He was wearing a bluish green T-shirt with white writing on the upper left chest, a camouflage baseball cap with the word “Hoyt” across the front, and blue sweat pants with white stripes down the sides white paint spatter, police said.

Police are investigating whether the same man is responsible for bank heists in West Manheim and Manchester townships.

West Manheim Township police said the man who stole money from the Santander Bank on Baltimore Pike on June 27 used a similar demand note and had a similar age and build.

Both wore athletic clothing with white paint spots or bleach-like splatter, and both wore caps with archery logos. The robber was wearing a blue “Lancaster Archery Supply” cap at the Santander branch.

In the Manchester Township, a demand note was used in the robbery of the Metro Bank in the first block of Arsenal Road shortly after 10 a.m. Thursday.

Northern York County Regional police said he did not display a weapon, but he did threaten to harm people in the bank if his demands were not met.

He was described as being in his late 20’s to early 30’s, 6’0″ tall with a medium build, and was wearing a purple long-sleeve Baltimore Ravens shirt and a camouflage hat, police said.

Anyone with information may call Northern York County Regional police at 717-292-3647, West Manchester Township police at 717-632-7059, Hanover police at 717-637-5575, or the FBI at 717-232-8686.
