By: WJAC Web Staff
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Police in Centre County have arrested two men on suspicion of committing more than two dozen burglaries throughout the Centre region over the past few months.
State College police filed charges Tuesday against Ryan Reichlin, 39, of State College and Aaron Klinger, 24, for allegedly committing at least 24 burglaries in the borough to feed a heroin habit.
Police said the burglary investigations began in November with help from Ferguson Township police, the Centre County Drug Task Force and the Centre County District Attorney's Office.
Through the investigation, police determined the two men were breaking into homes and stealing items that could be resold to buy heroin in Philadelphia, police said.
Reichlin was charged by State College police with 25 counts of burglary and Klinger was charged with eight counts of burglary, investigators said. Reichlin was also identified as being a part of a 2012 burglary in College Township. Charges were also filed against Reichlin by Ferguson Township police for burglaries in that township.
Reichlin was arraigned and put in the Centre County Correctional Facility. Klinger was already in the Centre County Correctional Facility on unrelated charges and would be arraigned at a later time.
