A Woodridge man was locked up in the Will County jail and is being held on a $1 million bond for allegedly conspiring to sell stolen auto parts.

Martinas Steigvila, 24, of 2214 Country Club Drive was charged with conspiracy, money laundering and theft.

The unemployed Woodridge man was arrested last week. An agent with the Illinois State Police was named as the complainant on the application for Steigvila's arrest warrant.

Steigvila got ahold of more than $100,000 worth of vehicle parts belonging to the company Meritor WABCO, according to a criminal complaint. Meritor WABCO is a "supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets," according to its website.

Steigvila also "delivered a price list to (an) FBI undercover agent," the complaint said, and met an agent with whom he "discussed the sale of vehicle parts" worth between $10,000 and $100,000.
