LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) -

Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers has announced a reward for information that leads to an arrest in two armed robberies.

The agency on Thursday released a surveillance photograph of their suspect in a robbery Tuesday at the J&K SuperMart, at 545 New Holland Avenue in Lancaster, where a black semi-automatic handgun was used to get money from the store at around 9:20 p.m.

The suspect is described as 25-30 years old, 5'6"-5'9" tall with a thin build, shaved head and a tattoo on his left forearm.

A female suspect, also pictured in the surveillance photo, was said to be in her mid-30's 5'3"-5'6" tall, with brown hair and thin build, but with a paunch around her abdomen.

The man is also a suspect in an armed robbery in Mountville the previous week.

West Hempfield Township police previously reported that a robber on May 20 pulled a knife on a store clerk at the Getty Mart, at Highland Drive and Stony Battery Road, but panicked and fled when the employee refused to give him money.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest and/or conviction.

Anyone with information may call Lancaster City/County Crime Stoppers at (800) 322-1913 or anonymously text LANCS plus a message to 847411.
