New's 4 told you Monday about four ATMs that were burglarized in the area.

We showed you surveillance video of the crime and as a result, authorities were able to identify one of the men involved.

However, the search continues for two suspects.

The man accused of burglarizing the ATMs is identified as Justin Wyat McArdle of Newville.

Several different law enforcement agencies are working together to make an arrest and are asking for your help to find him.

Surveillance video taken from a BP Gas Station in Dothan shows a man breaking in. The video is hard to make out, a key piece of evidence can be seen, which led law enforcement to make a positive identification of the suspect.

Investigator Bill Rafferty with the Houston County Sheriff’s Department said, "Chief of Newville identified the suspect who is a person of interest in the coin burglaries and ATM burglaries."

The suspect is identified as 27-year-old Justin McArdle. Law enforcement officials staked out McArdle’s house Thursday evening and searched the premises for incriminating evidence.

"Inside we found items of interest that look like they fit the description of some of items in the video," Rafferty said.

McArdle’s girlfriend, Mary Morris was inside the home when law enforcement arrived. She was arrested on charges of receiving stolen property and obstruction of justice.

Sergeant Jim Holley of the Dothan Police Department said, "His girlfriend tipped him off and we believe he's on the run at this time."

Law enforcement officials say McArdle is responsible for nine burglary and theft cases in the county as well as several in the city of Dothan.

Mary Morris, who police believe tipped off McArdle is being held in the Henry County Jail on a $20,000 dollar bond.

There is another man involved in this string of ATM burglaries; however, law enforcement officials haven't been able to identify him from the surveillance videos.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Justin McArdle, contact your local law enforcement agency. He is described as 5-foot-8 with brown hair.

He is believed to be driving a 1989 tan colored Chevy pick-up truck.
