National Guard lieutenant colonel caught receiving bribe in Samara
The former official of the National Guard was detained red-handed in Samara when receiving a bribe in exchange for the 'renewal' of weapons license.
In the Samara region on September 27, lieutenant colonel of the National Guard was detained red-handed when taking a bribe. The operation to detain the corrupt law enforcer was conducted by the employees of the regional FSB office.
It turned out that the detainee was a police lieutenant colonel, former employee of the National Guard's Department of Licensing and Permitting Work in Samara and the Volga district of the Samara region.
Law enforcers found that September 12, the detainee began to intimidate a man, whose license for firearms had expired, threatening him with a fine and arrest for 15 days. He demanded 25 thousand rubles ($434) to hush up the affair. Later, he reduced the amount to 21 thousand rubles ($364).
September 22, the man gave the National Guard employee 5 thousand rubles ($86), and another 16 thousand rubles ($278) on September 27. After that, the bribe-taker was detained by the FSB.
The materials on the operation will be soon referred to the ICR for the initiation of criminal proceedings.
The press service of the National Guard Office in the Samara region reported that August 29, the employee in question resigned at his own request.

The CrimeRussia was figuring out where does the ‘nonexistent’ road go.
