An arrest has been made


Update on my previous post:


"Albemarle police say they have made an arrest in the Halloween robbery and slaying of an 81-year-old coin shop owner.


Police say Ryan Anthony Efird was taken into custody earlier Wednesday without incident. Efird, 45, of Albemarle, is being held without bond in the Stanly County Detention Center.


He has been charged in connection with the death of Eldridge Roger Gibson.


Gibson, longtime owner of B&G Coins on West Main Street, died late Oct. 31, a few hours after being shot inside his store. Police obtained surveillance video of a man who they said was inside the store for about 20 minutes.


Video showed the man leaving B&G Coins with two bags, then getting into the victim's white pickup truck. That truck was found abandoned a few days later in an Albemarle park.


State prison records show a Ryan Anthony Efird of Albemarle has a lengthy record of arrests on various larceny and breaking-and-entering charges. He served an eight-month prison term in 2011 for felony breaking-and-entering, according to state records."


I hope they got the right man, and that he never again sees the outside of a cell.
