Sometime in the early morning Sunday, thieves scaled the walls of the Eli Lilly warehouse on Freshwater Boulevard.
As a light rain fell, they cut a hole in the roof of the 70,000-square-foot building and slid down ropes to get inside.
They disabled the building's alarm system, and police believe they loaded several dozen pallets of prescription drugs — worth $75 million — into at least one truck parked at the rear of the building, and drove away.
The heist wasn't discovered until the afternoon, when an employee went to work.
