On Wednesday, January 7th at around 4:30 pm a man entered the First Merchants Bank on US 27 and SR 44 and demanded cash. He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.

The man is described as 5'8" to 5'10" and was wearing a hood black Carhart style jacket with faded black pants.  His face was covered by a light gray mesh mask.

It is believed that the subject fled the scene in a dark gray compact passenger car, possibly a late 1990's model Dodge Neon.

Authorities believe that the same robber could be responsible for the robbery of a bank on December 10th, 2008.
