KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner Police say they've caught the men connected to an armed robbery outside a Capital One Bank in October.

Officers say on Friday they arrested and booked Jacky Manasco with armed robbery. They say Michael Gordon, who they also arrested Friday, faces a principal to armed robbery charge.

Last October, a man told police he had just withdrew money from a Capital One at 1000 W. Esplanade, when a man held a silver gun to his head. Police say after the man took his money, the robber got away in a van.

Investigators say evidence shows Manasco and Gordon not only participated in the planning of the armed robbery, but had also followed the victim on previous occasions.

Officers say authorities had already arrested Manasco in connection with his role in a similar armed robbery in Lockport in February.
