NEW HAVEN Two Miami men have been arrested in the dramatic theft of $80 million in pharmaceuticals from an Eli Lilly Co. warehouse in Enfield two years ago, federal authorities announced Thursday.
Amaury Villa, 37, and his brother, Amed Villa, 46, both citizens of Cuba who live in Miami, were arrested Thursday in Miami on conspiracy and theft charges related to their alleged participation in the theft.

I work as an investment advisor in South Dade County. Several of my clients were in the trade in the 80s and several spent time in the pen for it. I grew up in Texas and always thought the movies were exaggerations of South Florida. I was wrong!

People who have never been to New York City thought the comedy character “Andrew Dice Clay” was an exaggeration too.

Why steal a bunch of anti-depressants and mood stabilizers? I know that’s a dumb question($). But I would go for opiates. Not alot of people addicted to Zyprexa and Prozac.
Fidel needs them to support the Cuban medical system.
