Yevgeny Mendel is charged with taking a bribe of $13.500.

The Acting Chief of the Traktorozavodky police station is suspected of protection racket of a gambling business in Chelyabinsk.

According to investigators, the senior police officer took a bribe of 800 thousand rubles ($13.500) from a local entrepreneur. In return, Mendel had to warn the woman of any upcoming checks of illegal gambling businesses.
