Second Arrest Made

Richmond police arrested a second man in connection with the Behl case.

<bt>Another arrest has been made in connection with the case of Vienna resident Taylor Behl, 17, who has been missing from Virginia Commonwealth University since the night of Sept. 5.

Officer R. Brown of the Richmond Police Public Information Office confirmed that a man was arrested when a police dog led officers to his house after a search of Behl's car. The man, whose name and age have not yet being released, was charged with possession of cocaine, Brown said. He is reportedly acquainted with one of Behl's friends.

Also in connection with the Behl case, Police have issued a request for information regarding a Virginia license plate with the letters GRN ERTH, Brown said. Police asked that anyone who has seen a vehicle with the license plate since Sept. 5 should call 804-514-8477. Brown said police want a description of the vehicle and anyone who may have been seen in the vehicle. No other information about the plate and its connection to the case is being released at this time.

Behl was last seen leaving her dorm room around 10 p.m. Sept. 5. On Sept. 17, her car was found in Richmond with stolen license plates on it.

The first arrest made in connection with the case was that of 38-year-old Benjamin Fawley, who was one of the last people to see Behl the night of her disappearance. A search of his home resulted in child pornography charges, and Fawley was arrested on Sept. 23.

Police have reported that Fawley had a relationship with Behl and that he filed a police report on Sept. 6, the day after Behl's disappearance, saying that in the early hours of that morning he had been attacked, robbed and abducted by a group of unknown people.
