Lee County --  Two men accused of more than three dozen thefts from vehicles in Lee County and Albany are in jail thanks to a WALB viewer. Monday night, we first showed you surveillance pictures of Larry Bodily using a stolen ATM card.

Thanks to tips from a viewer, Bodily was arrested in Sasser Tuesday night. A suspected accomplice, Michael Etheridge, was arrested at Wal-Mart where the two cashed checks stolen from cars in two communities.

"They were also doing it in Albany. Detective with A.P.D, Detective Dawson, we got together and compared some notes and actually figured out a few things. After we compared notes and we managed to catch them yesterday," said Captain Miles O'Quinn of the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators say the suspects stole ID's, checks, and debit cards from unlocked cars. They then used the checks and cards to buy groceries, electronic equipment, and clothing at Wal-Mart, often before anyone realized the cards were missing.
