An attorney for a Florida man charged in the theft of about $80 million in prescription drugs from a Connecticut warehouse in 2010 said his client probably will plead guilty. Jonathan J. Einhorn, attorney for Amed Villa, said Friday that a guilty plea is a ‘‘good likelihood’’ in the case but negotiations are continuing. Villa and his brother Amaury were arrested last year in Florida on federal theft and conspiracy charges related to their alleged participation in the theft, called the biggest in Connecticut history. An attorney for Amaury Villa said he will plead not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday in New Haven, but she does not expect the case to go to trial. (AP)
