Arrests Made in Theft of American Legion Grill
Two Manchester residents have been arrested for the November theft of an expensive meat smoker from the Manchester American Legion.
The incident was reported to Manchester Police on December 3rd. The large grill was stolen from the American Legion, on North Franklin Street in Manchester. An investigation determined the meat smoker was taken on November 30th, 4 days after Thanksgiving.
The suspects then transported the unit to the Des Moines area, where they sold it. Authorities were able to recover the grill on December 8th, just over a week later.
The first suspect to be arrested was 48 year old Laurie Selby, on December 31st. Then last Friday, January 8th, 31 year old Dallas Selby was taken into custody.
