WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - West Palm Beach police have arrested a second teen in connection with the thefts at the Palm Beach Zoo earlier this month.

Eighteen-year-old Jonathon Lopez was arrested Tuesday. He and another teen are accused of stealing four monkeys and a parrot from the zoo. Lopez lives just two doors down from where the animals were found.

All the animals have since recovered. Investigators expect more arrests.
