LANCASTER COUNTY — Police have charged a second suspect in a June 9 burglary case in Ephrata Township.

Brandi Marks, 37, of Ephrata, is charged with burglary, criminal conspiracy, and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Ephrata Borough Police.

She is accused of acting as the getaway driver for her conspirator, David Dutcher Jr., who was arrested June 20, police say. Marks allegedly had a pre-school-aged child in the vehicle with her at the time, according to police.

The items were taken from a home on the 1200 block of Lincoln Road in Ephrata Township on June 9, according to police.

Marks was charged after a police investigation of the case. She was arraigned on the charges and is free on unsecured bail.
