West Whiteland Township police, aided by a getaway car that became disabled, have arrested a second individual in connection with two break-ins at township businesses that were discovered on Wednesday.

Cody Killian, 18, of Downingtown,  has been charged with burglary and related offenses, but police are still seeking his alleged accomplice, Dylan Roberts, 20, also from Downingtown.

West Whiteland Township Det. Scott Pezick said police found Killian's vehicle, which had become disabled, a short distance from the crime scene.
