A Sharpsville woman has been charged for allegedly making a bomb threat that forced the evacuation of the Mercer County Courthouse on Monday morning.
The courthouse was shut down from shortly before 10:00 AM until 1:00 PM following an anonymous call that police say was eventually traced to a woman identified as Margie Small. Reports indicate that more than one call may have been received.
A sweep of the courthouse produced nothing.
Small was charged with making terroristic threats and with harassment.
