Two suspects have been charged after allegedly burglarizing a car through accessing keys that were in a locker at a Madison gym. 

According to Metro Police, the male suspect walked through the gym's parking lot looking for the vehicle while his female accomplice served as a "lookout." 

Police were able to identify the suspects through the surveillance video that was captured on May 11th around 5a.m.

On Friday, Justin Graham was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle, 2 counts of theft under $1,000, and failure to be booked. 

His accomplice, Bobbie Riley, was charged with burglary of a motor vehicle, and 2 counts of theft under $1,000. 

They apparently used Riley's gym card to scan in to the Planet Fitness.

The victim, Reggie Mullins, said they got away with his wallet and a couple items in his car. 

Mullins said, "First of all, I was terrified he might have stolen my car, and luckily he didn't do that. But just that initial shock that is all my stuff going to be gone? It was." 

He said he noticed Graham in the gym.

Mullins said, "I knew immediately he looked suspicious because he wasn't wearing gym clothes or anything like that."

Now, he's on high alert.

Even though they're in custody, he's still concerned because they have his personal information. 

Mullins said, "He did get my bank account information and all my credit card information, cause that unfortunately was in there."

He wants to warn other gym goers because in the moment he thought his keys were out of sight.

Mullins said, "I kinda hid them. I put them in my shoes, wrapped them up in a sweater I had, put them in a bag, so they went through all my stuff and got the keys."

After what happened, he has some advise for other people who use gym lockers. 

Mullins said,"Get a lock, I keep a lock now and I lock it up every single time I go in there, I mean that's the main thing you can do when there's people just kind of going around and going through your hard earned stuff." 

The suspects are expected to be in court Tuesday at 9:15a.m. and 9:55 a.m.  

Planet Fitness said they are investigating but have no further comment at this time.
