Alleged Bank Robber to be Extradited Tuesday
Joel Gordon, who is being charged with robbing two banks in Manchester, N.H., will be extradited to New Hampshire following his arrest this weekend in Andover.
Bedford, N.H. man Joel Gordon was arraigned Monday in Lawrence District Court and is being held in Middleton without bail. But he may be back in New Hampshire by Tuesday to face charges in connection with two bank robberies in Manchester, N.H. earlier this month.
According to Essex County District Attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball-Monahan, New Hampshire Sheriff's Department officers plan to pick up Gordon on Tuesday so he can face charges in the Granite State.
Judge Michael Brooks heard the case Monday in Lawrence and ordered Gordon to stay at the Middleton House of Corrections until he is extradited back to New Hampshire.
Gordon was arrested in Andover early Saturday morning after police received word that he was staying at the Andover Inn. Police said they were able to apprehend Gordon without incident.
New Hampshire police initially sought Gordon for allegedly robbing a TD Bank branch on South Main Street in Manchester, N.H. on June 11, according to WMUR. Then last week, Manchester police said Gordon was also wanted for robbing the Digital Federal Credit Union on South Willow Street in Manchester this past Wednesday morning.
