Between March and April 2013, more than 39,000 pounds of metal was stolen from a Southington tool company and police have arrested two suspects.
Police said Gary M. Desrochers and Nicholas B. Marin, both of Bristol, are accused of stealing around $25,000 worth of tool-grade metal from C.V. Tool Company, at 44 Robert Porter Road, and selling it to a scrap yard.
C.V. Tool makes hardware for the steam turbine, nuclear, space and aircraft industries and the theft was reported on April 8.
Desrochers and Marin were arrested last week and charged with larceny in the first degree, conspiracy to commit larceny in the first degree, conspiracy to commit criminal trespass in the third degree, criminal trespass in the third degree, conspiracy to commit criminal mischief in the third degree and criminal mischief in the third degree.
Both men were held on a court-set bond of $100.000 and appeared in court in Bristol on Thursday.
