INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal lawsuit contends that thieves who broke into an Eli Lilly and Co. warehouse in Connecticut three years ago and stole more than $60 million worth of drugs obtained a copy of a report that revealed weaknesses in the building’s security system.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Eli Lilly insurer National Union sued ADT Security Services this month in federal court in Connecticut. ADT had created a report before the March 2010 break-in detailing weaknesses in the warehouse’s security system.

The suit seeks $42 million in damages from ADT, whose corporate security business is now run by Tyco Integrated Security.

The suit says the security report allowed two brothers indicted in the theft to know the warehouse’s placement of every security camera, motion detector and glass-break sensor.
