According to court documents and statements made in court, on July 23, 2013, Wolvovsky was arrested after he received delivery of a package containing a tableting machine that had been ordered from China and delivered to his residence.

On that date, Wolvovsky stated to investigators that he purchased the machine through an individual he had met on the Internet, and that he had also purchased what he had believed to be a large quantity oxycodone powder from the same individual.

Wolvovsky then stated that, before the machine had arrived, he had tested the powder and determined that it was not true oxycodone powder. A subsequent search of Wolvovsky’s residence revealed a package containing approximately one kilogram of the fake oxycodone powder. The search also revealed opiate test kits, packaging materials, tablet dying/imprinting machinery and $21,034 in cash.

On July 24, 2014, Wolvovsky waived his right to indictment and pleaded guilty to one count of unlawfully importing a tableting machine.

This matter is being investigated by the DEA New Haven Tactical Diversion Squad and Homeland Security Investigations. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rahul Kale.
