The Camp Hill Borough Police Department said this morning it is investigating a series of crimes that occurred during the early morning hours on Saturday.

Police said in a press release that a robbery incident took place at 2:17 a.m. in the 300 block of North 25th Street. The victims report that they just came home from downtown Harrisburg and they were approached by a black male in his 20s wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans and a bandana over his face. He was armed with a revolver and demanded “valuables." He was accompanied by a white male in his late teens with a shaved head and was wearing a black t-shirt and blue jeans. The victims did give the perpetrators their wallet and cell phone.

While investigating the robbery incident, police said the victims said the perpetrators were seen in a White 2010 GMC Envoy that was parked on the street. Upon checking the vehicle, it was determined that it had been stolen from the 300 block of North 24th Street.

At 8 a.m. Camp Hill police said they received a report of theft of a Tom Tom GPS unit and a Dell 6300 Series LapTop computer from a vehicle in the 300 block of North 24th Street.

At 9 a.m. a victim living in the 300 block of Willow Avenue in the Borough reported to police that his Grey 2006 Hyundai Sonata had been stolen from the front of the residence. This vehicle has not yet been recovered.

Police said they believe that all of the crimes are related and were most likely perpetrated by the same individuals.

Anyone that can assist in this investigation or has knowledge of the persons involved in these crimes is asked to contact the Camp Hill Borough Police Department at 717-238-9676.
