Cymbalta, Prozac and More Stolen in Prescription Drug Heist

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

The town of Enfield, Conn. is reeling after a group of theives stole massive amounts of prescription drugs from an East Coast distribution facility for Eli Lilly. The theives cut a hole in the roof of the warehouse and slid down ropes to get inside and left with $75 million worth of pills, including large amounts of anti-depressants.

For more we turn to Christine Demsey, who is covering the story for The Hartford Courant. She says that even though no painkillers or narcotics were stolen, these drugs will likely end up on the black market.
