CRIME SPREE: Police Arrest Suspect

Des Moines police have arrested a suspect they believe was involved in three separate crimes on the same day.

Police say 22-year-old Taylor Macmanus-Sellers of Des Moines was arrested Thursday after officers pulled him over.

Macmanus-Sellers is accused of committing the crimes last Saturday between 1:20 and 3:00 in the afternoon.

Officers say he tried to pry into an ATM at the Greater Iowa Credit Union in the 600 block of East 30th. He didn’t get any money from the ATM.

Then Macmanus-Sellers broke into coin boxes at the Four Mile Car Wash in the 3700 block of Easton. He got away with about $100 in change.

During this time frame police say Macmanus-Sellers also tried to rob the Star gas station in the 3700 block of East University at knife point. Police say he demanded money, but took off when the clerk confronted him with a metal baseball bat.

Macmanus-Sellers is charged with first degree robbery, first degree burglary, and fifth degree criminal mischief. He is being held in the Polk County Jail.
