NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- A Miami man who pleaded guilty to the theft of about $90 million in prescription drugs from a warehouse in Connecticut has pleaded guilty to similar thefts in Florida, Kentucky and Virginia.
Amed Villa pleaded guilty in federal court in New Haven on Monday. He was charged with stealing more than $20 million worth of cigarettes, cellphones, inhalers and multimedia tablets from warehouses in the three states.
Villa, a Cuban citizen, pleaded guilty in July to theft and conspiracy charges stemming from his participation in the theft at pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly & Co. in 2010.
His brother, Amaury, has pleaded not guilty in Connecticut to the Eli Lilly heist.
