Janesville man pleads not guilty in club-drug case
JANESVILLE—A Janesville man accused of trying to sell $32,000 worth of a club drug pleaded not guilty Monday in Rock County Court.
Allen A. Strzyzykowski, 23, of 1731 S. Crosby Ave., is charged with possession with intent to deliver methylone and possession of marijuana.
Sheriff's deputies arrested Strzyzykowski on Highway 51 near the Southern Wisconsin Regional Airport on May 7 and reported confiscating nearly two pounds of suspected methylone, said to be related chemically to MDMA, or ecstasy.
A search warrant affidavit says the drug came from another person who had been receiving it via the mail from China.
Those involved in the scheme were selling the methylone as “molly,” the document states. Molly is a variant of ecstasy that is said to be relatively free of other substances.
The drug also was referred to as “crystal,” is said to be popular at clubs and other events featuring electronic music.
The payoff Strzyzykowski was to get for the drug was $2,000 and two personal watercraft, documents allege.
Deputies were tipped off by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, which had a suspect in custody who told agents that he had planned to buy the drug from Strzyzykowski at the Turtle Island playground in Beloit on May 7, according to court documents.
The case has been assigned to Judge Richard Werner.
