Suspect sought for armed robbery in Hanover

Posted: Updated:

A robber had a handgun tucked in his waistband when he demanded money from a Hanover business Monday night.

The robbery occurred at the Hanover Crossing shopping center in the 400 block of Eisenhower Drive around 7:15 p.m.

Hanover Police Chief Dwayne Smith said the victim, a 21-year-old McSherrystown man, was alone in the business when the robber began browsing the store as if he were a customer.

He eventually approached the cash register, raised his shirt to show the handgun and demanded money. Smith said the victim complied and handed over several hundred dollars from the register.

The suspect then ordered the victim to walk out of the store with him, then instructed him to walk one direction while he walked in the other, Smith said.

The robber was last seen walking west along the 300 block of Eisenhower Drive.

The victim, who was not injured, called police from a nearby business.

He described the robber as wearing a black baggy T-shirt, baggy blue jeans, white sneakers, and a black baseball style hat with a white logo on the front.

He also had a “chin-strap” beard, several tattoos on his left arm, hands and neck, and a "tear drop" tattoo near his right eye.

Police have released surveillance photos so that someone may recognize him.

Anyone with information may call Hanover police at 717-637-5575.
