The 1st Community Bank in Sherrard was robbed shortly after noon Monday.

The Mercer County Sheriff's Department was at the bank Monday afternoon, but no details had been released as of Monday night.

The bank robbery was the second in Mercer County in little more than a month. On Nov. 8, Union Federal Savings and Loan at 1507 13th St., Viola, was robbed.

No arrests have been made in that robbery.
