First of Three Admitted Englishtown Pharmacy Burglars Sentenced

One of three suspects who admitted stealing thousands of doses of oxycodone and other Schedule II pharmaceuticals from an Englishtown drug shop in June 2012 heads to prison for 63 months.

James Zarbailov, 23, of Brooklyn, was sentenced in a Trenton federal courtroom for his guilty plea to one count of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute oxycodone. He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $334, 722.12 and undergo three years’ supervised release.

David Mordukahev, 22, and Dzheykhun Avshalumov, 24, also of Brooklyn, pleaded guilty to the same charge and are scheduled to be sentenced in December.

According to information related to the case, the Union Hill-Supremo Pharmacy was looted just after 4:00 AM on June 17 last year. The stolen drugs, said investigators, filled 17 garbage bags and two cardboard boxes.

Prosecutors said the trio made off with about 3,800 doses of oxycodone, 1,988 doses of methylphenidate, 500 units of hydromorphone, and 300 doses of oxymorphone branded as Opana. The cash value was estimated at $350,000.
