A stunning Lilly warehouse heist puts security firm on trial

Six years after burglars pulled off daring heist at an Eli Lilly ($LLY) warehouse in Connecticut, a civil trial will explore whether the thieves got their hands on a report of the warehouse security weaknesses from ADT/Tyco. The suit, brought by one of Lilly's insurers, suggests someone either hacked into Tyco's computer systems or were given a copy of the report, which they used to rappel into the warehouse at the precise spot that allowed them to evade security cameras and motion detectors. They were then able to disable alarm systems and drive away with about $70 million worth of drugs. More from FiercePharmaManufacturing
