Lilly Asks Public to Watch for Stolen Conn. Drugs

Friday, 19 Mar 2010 11:09 AM

Eli Lilly and Co. is asking the public for help in spotting $75 million worth of stolen prescription drugs.

The Indianapolis-based drugmaker also is warning consumers to watch for tampering on products that might indicate they were stolen.

Thieves broke into the company's Enfield warehouse early Sunday. They scaled an exterior wall, cut through the ceiling, rappelled inside on a rope and disabled security alarms.

The company says they stole antidepressants, anti-psychotic and hyperactivity drugs, bipolar depression medication, a blood thinner, and cancer treatments.

Enfield Police Chief Carl Sferrazza (sfur-AH'-zah) said Friday that detectives are reviewing surveillance video. The FBI is also investigating.
