Second suspect arrested for Torresdale pharmacy burglary

Police have located and arrested the second man wanted in connection with a May burglary at the Delair Pharmacy.

Samuel Wiley of the 6900-block of Keystone Street in Tacony, is charged with burglary and related offenses. Dennis Woods was arrested in North Wildwood in late August and was returned to Philadelphia to face burglary and fugitive charges.

The men were captured on surveillance breaking into the pharmacy on State Road and stealing pills before fleeing the scene when they heard over a radio scanner that police were coming.
