Word from New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman indicates that Dzheykhun Avshalumov, 24, of Brooklyn, New York, pleaded to one count of conspiracy to distribute, and to possess with intent to distribute, oxycodone.

The Union Hill-Supremo Pharmacy was ransacked before dawn on June 17, 2012. Investigators say Avshalumov, James Zarbailov and David Morduhkhaev filled 17 trash bags and two cardboard boxes with about 1,988 doses of methylphenidate, 500 dosage units of hydromorphone, and 300 doses of Opana in addition to about 3,800 dosage units of oxycodone.

All told, the estimated value of the Schedule II narcotics was placed at $350,000.

Avshalumov admitted stealing the merchandise, say authorities. The charge to which he pleaded carries a possible prison term of 20 years and a fine as high as $1,000,000. His sentence is scheduled to be handed down December 19.
