PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Police have identified one of the suspects, accused of using stolen checks at a Downtown Portsmouth ATM to withdraw hundreds of dollars.

On December 8, Navy Federal check cards, checkbooks, jewelry and numerous electronics were stolen during a burglary in the 3600 block of Gateway Drive, according to Detective Misty D. Holley with the Portsmouth Police Department.

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.
