TAYLORSVILLE -- Police say they arrested a serial burglar suspect for a rare-coin robbery outside a McDonald's restaurant in Taylorsville.

Unified Police of Greater Salt Lake are asking the public for help developing additional charges against the man for other thefts in the area.

The suspect, identified by police as Al-Wazzan, was arrested Thursday shortly after he arranged to meet the seller of some rare coins at a McDonald's parking lot.

Police say he sped off without paying for the coins, after punching the coin seller.
