Des Moines police have shared a video of a serial robbery suspect wanted in 11 such thefts around the metro.
The video is from a robbery at the Kum&Go on SE 14th Street in Des Moines.
The suspect appears to attempt to pay for a small item, then jumps over the counter and grabs cash from the register as soon as it opens.
According to police, Justin Ware, 38, is wanted in at least 11 cases since January 26 in Des Moines and surrounding suburbs, including a Des Moines Taco John’s Thursday.
Police said each theft happened at convenience-type stores. During two incidents, the clerks were assaulted.
