Police in Enfield, CT say that a “well-planned” burglary of an Eli Lilly warehouse netted some criminals $75 million worth of Prozac, Cymbalta and Zyprexa.
It was yet another Mission:Impossible “hole in the roof” type job, according to Reuters. The thieves disabled alarms and took away whole pallets of drugs.
“You certainly don’t see a $50 million to $75 million burglary many times in your career,” a police officer said. “This was a well-planned event.”
It’s not know where the drugs are headed.
“Consumers should purchase Lilly products only from well-established and reputable retailers,” the drugmaker said in a statement. “Lilly recommends that consumers always inspect the product and label for signs of tampering before opening.”
