On December 12 and 21, two male suspects used the ATM on County Street to put checks stolen from the burglary victims into a Navy Federal Credit Union account and immediately withdraw a total of $800.

Holley said it is unclear how they got the PIN numbers to the debit cards.

After WAVY News aired a report about the crimes Thursday, Holley said detectives received tips that helped them identify a male suspect.
