A Florida man charged in the 2010 theft of $80 million in prescription drugs from Enfield warehouse Eli Lilly plans to plead guilty to the crime, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Amed Villa is set to plead guilty to federal theft and conspiracy charges, his attorney, Jonathan J. Einhorn, told the AP.

A change of plea hearing was postponed Monday until July 1, according to HartfordBusiness.com.

Villa is one of two men charged by federal authorities last year for his alleged participation in the state's largest drug heist, the theft of $80 million worth of pharmaceutical drugs from the Eli Lilly Co. distribution center in the Enfield industrial park.

Villa's brother, Amaury Villa, has pleaded not guilty in Connecticut, Hartford Business reports.
