LANCASTER, Pa. (WHTM) – A man and woman will each serve at least a decade in prison for a spree of Lancaster County store robberies.

Authorities said in the Christmas Eve robbery, Thomas pointed a handgun at a female clerk at an A-Plus store on Lititz Pike in Manheim Township. She threatened the clerk that if she didn't open the register, she would "never see another Christmas again."

She also pleaded guilty to three robberies in Lancaster; at the US Gas Mart on North Lime Street, the Turkey Hill on East Chestnut Street, and the Family Dollar on North Franklin Street.

Dorsey admitted to those crimes and a Christmas Eve robbery at a Turkey Hill in East Hempfield Township. Authorities said he held box cutter to one clerk and a knife to the neck of another in separate robberies.

Thomas is accused of robbing a Choice Cigarettes store on Market Street in Harrisburg. Dorsey is accused of robbing a Uni-Mart on North Front Street in Susquehanna Township on Christmas Eve.
