Investigators say a search warrant executed at a Wausau home uncovered new information leading to a break in an Antigo burglary case.
According to court documents officers responded to Cousineau Auto Recycling on October 10, 2013 after the owner reported several missing catalytic converters.
Officers were again called to Cosineau's in early January for missing alternators.
According to the criminal complaint, Pat Snellings, 27, of Wausau admitted to breaking into the business in January, but denied involvement in the October break-in.
Patrick Eppolite, 20, is charged with the October break-in. Snellings reportedly told police his only involvement in the October incident was that he picked up Eppolite at a nearby property.
Investigators believe the car parts were sold for scrap.
Snellings remains behind bars in the Langlade County Jail. He's expected to be charged on March 19.
Eppolite is also in custody. A future court date has not yet been set.
