NEW HAVEN, Conn. -

A Florida man is facing arraignment on charges in the theft of about $80 million in prescription drugs from a Connecticut warehouse in 2010.

An attorney for Amaury Villa says he'll plead not guilty at his arraignment Tuesday in New Haven, but she doesn't expect the case to go to trial.

Amaury Villa pleaded guilty in Florida last year to possessing drugs stolen from the warehouse.

Amaury Villa and his brother Amed Villa 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.

Jonathan Einhorn, attorney for Amed Villa, told The Associated Press Friday that a guilty plea is a "good likelihood" in his case.

Negotiations are continuing. The brothers live in Miami.
