Three arrested for massive oxycodone scheme at New York pharmacies

NEW YORK | BY NATE RAYMOND

Three people have been arrested on charges that they engaged in what court papers describe as one of the largest schemes ever uncovered to divert oxycodone pills involving pharmacies in New York City, U.S. prosecutors said Thursday.

Lilian Jakacki, who owned two pharmacies in the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens, was arrested in Greenwich, Connecticut late Wednesday along with her husband, Marcin Jakacki, for illegally distributing 500,000 pills of the highly-addictive painkiller.

An indictment said the two collected hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash payments by illegally selling the pills to, among others, Robert Cybulski, a Staten Island resident who was one of the largest purchasers and was also arrested.

The pills had a street value of $10 million to $15 million, prosecutors said, and the illegal proceeds enabled the Jakackis to buy a $2 million home in Greenwich, prosecutors said.
