Effie bank robber captured near Libuse

Michael David Gordon, 46, of 46 Gunter Road near  Libuse, was arrested at his home shortly before noon today, Sept. 23, in connection with the Effie bank armed robbery, according to published reports.

The Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office, along with Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Marshal’s Service Fugitive Task Force and the FBI, jointly served Gordon with a warrant for armed robbery and false imprisonment.

Published reports indicate Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators “received a break in the case today.”

Law enforcement authorities have been searching for the bank robber since Tuesday afternoon, when a lone gunman first came into Cottonport Bank  acting as if he wanted to make a loan. He left and returned a short time later pointing the gun at the teller while demanding money.

Gordon is accused of waiting to brandish the weapon until after the single bank customer left the bank. He allegedly took an undetermined amount of money and left employees bound at the wrist in a storage closet.
