--Original Story--

The Preston County Sheriff's Department is investigating a bank robbery that occurred around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Sheriff's deputies said a man robbed the WesBanco in Bruceton Mills and fled with an undetermined amount of cash.

Sheriff's deputies said no one was injured but wouldn't say whether a weapon was used.

Witnesses said the building was on lock down for several hours.

The Sheriff's Department is being assisted by the West Virginia State police and the FBI.  Because of the proximity to Pennsylvania and Maryland, law enforcement agencies in those states were also notified.
