The second of three defendants involved in the looting of a massive amount of narcotics from a Marlboro drug store in 2012 is given 65 months in prison
David Mordukhaev, 22, of Brooklyn, was sentenced in Trenton today in a deal that allowed him to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute oxycodone, according to details from the office of New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.
Dzeykhun Avshalumov, 24, and James Zarbailov, 23, also of Brooklyn, also submitted guilty pleas to the same charges. Zarbailov was sentenced to 63 months last month. Avshalumov's sentencing is scheduled for December 19.
Prosecutors contended that the three broke into the Union Hill-Supremo Pharmacy just after 4:00 AM on June 17, 2012, filling 17 garbage bags and two cardboard boxes with drugs including about 3,800 doses of oxycodone, 1,988 doses of methylphenidate, 500 doses of hydromorphone, and 300 doses of Opana.
Investigators estimated the value to be in the neighborhood of $335,000.
