North Royalton man indicted for conspiring to distribute controlled substance analogues commonly sold as Molly

A North Royalton man was indicted in federal court for conspiring to distribute controlled substance analogues commonly sold on the street as Molly.

Robert Przybylski, 37, was indicted on one count of conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, one count of possession of controlled substances to intent to distribute and two counts of attempted possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute.

Przbylski conspired with others from September 2016 to the present to possess N-ethyl Pentylone and N-ethyl Norpentylone, Schedule I analogue drugs often sold as the street drug Molly, according to the indictment.

Przbylski possessed 46 grams of N-ethyl Norpentylone in October 2016. He attempted to possess a kilogram of N-ethyl Norpentylone on Oct. 4, 2016 and tried to possess N-ethyl Pentylone on July 10, 2017, according to the indictment.

This case is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations and the Medina County Drug Task Force. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Matthew Cronin.

If convicted, the defendant’s sentence will be determined by the Court after review of factors unique to this case, including the defendant’s prior criminal record, if any, the defendant’s role in the offense and the characteristics of the violations.  In all cases, the sentence will not exceed the statutory maximum and, in most cases, it will be less than the maximum.

A charge is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is entitled to a fair trial in which it will be the government's burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
