NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Federal authorities have charged three more Florida men in the theft of about $80 million in prescription drugs from a warehouse in Connecticut in 2010.

The U.S. Attorney’s office said Tuesday that Yosmany Nunez of Southwest Ranches, Alexander Marquez of Hialeah and Rafael Lopez of Miami were indicted on conspiracy and theft charges for their alleged participation in the theft from an Eli Lilly & Co. warehouse in Enfield.

It was unclear if the men had attorneys.

Amed Villa of Miami pleaded guilty last year to theft and conspiracy charges stemming from his participation in the theft.  His brother, Amaury, pleaded not guilty in Connecticut and is awaiting trial.

The Eli Lilly heist is believed to be the largest theft in Connecticut’s history.
