Here are some more details on the story we brought you yesterday about a crime duo that police think had been hitting local businesses.

30-year-old Matthew Bartz of the Town of Lockport is still a fugitive after police spent all of yesterday scouring the area for him.

They say Bartz and 21-year-old Stephanie Mottorn had keys from a corporate development company and were sneaking in to take small amounts of cash from a number of businesses.

When police stopped Mottorn, she had a number of tools for burglary in her possession, including a cordless drill, pick sets, a flash light, latex gloves and more. She's in jail on $7,500 bail. 

Bartz, however, has yet to be detained. Police say he's armed, dangerous, and could be suicidal. He's driving a blue Chevy Silverado pickup with the license plate .
