Robbery investigation leads to additional arrests

 Kenner - An ongoing criminal investigation concerning an October armed robbery that occurred outside Capital One Bank has resulted in additional arrests. 

 On Friday, Jacky Manasco, 45, of 4205 Pommard Avenue, Kenner, was arrested and charged with the crime of armed robbery.   In addition, to Manascoís arrest, Michael Gordon of 1013 31st Street, in Kenner, was arrested and charged with the crime of principal to armed robbery. 

 

 On October 14, 2014, the 63-year-old male victim reported he had just withdrawn currency from the Capital One Bank, located at 1000 West Esplanade Avenue, in Kenner.  The victim was entering his vehicle when he was approached by a male suspect who placed a silver handgun to his head and demanded money.  During a struggle, the victim sustained a laceration to his left ear from being struck with the gun.  After taking the victimís money at gunpoint, the suspect fled to an awaiting van and fled. 

 

 Information and evidence has been obtained in which both Manasco and Gordon not only participated in the planning of the armed robbery, but had followed the victim on previous occasions, and shared the proceeds taken during the armed robbery.  Manasco had been arrested concerning his role in a similar armed robbery that occurred in Lockport, in February.  At the time of this press release, Gordon remains incarcerated and Manasco has bonded out of jail.  Both Gordon and Manascoís bond had been set at $150,000 each.     . 

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone with information concerning Michael Gordon, Jacky Manasco, or this robbery to call the Kenner Police Detective Jessica Zuppardo at (504) 712-2410 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
