ALEXANDRIA, La. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a Rapides
Parish man and booked him with Tuesday's armed robbery of the Effie branch of the Cottonport Bank.
Deputies say 46-year-old Michael David Gordon was arrested Thursday at his home near Libuse.
Gordon is accused of brandishing a handgun at the bank, binding two employees' wrists and locking them in a closet while he committed the robbery.
Gordon was booked into the Rapides Parish Jail and then transported to Avoyelles Parish, where his bond was set at $1 million.
It was not immediately known whether Gordon has an attorney.
