WILLIAMSPORT --Police believe two people who had their faces concealed were trying to rob the Washington County Teachers Federal Credit Union along Virginia Avenue when they approached the building about 5 p.m. Monday.
When the two people realized the doors to the credit union were locked, they ran toward Hampton Road behind the credit union, said Greg Alton, an investigator with the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
A police dog tracked the scent of the two people to Hampton Road, where the suspects might have climbed into a vehicle, Alton said.
Four police agencies searched for the pair after the 5:06 p.m. incident and authorities were still looking for them Monday night, officials said. A Maryland State Police helicopter searched for the suspects after the incident, Alton said.
The credit union at 16802 Virginia Ave. has been robbed twice since December and Alton said police cannot rule out the possibility that Monday's incident was related to those robberies.
