Federal investigators will join police in Enfield, Connecticut today in trying to figure out who stole an estimated $50 to $75 million in prescription drugs from an Eli Lilly and Co.

Police Chief Carl Sferrazza believes those responsible cut a hole in the roof and repelled inside. He says they probably left through a back door because at least one semi was needed to remove the drugs.
Investigators believe about 70 pallets of prescription drugs have been taken.
Sferrazza says they do not have a list of exactly what was taken, but it's believed pain killers are involved.
