The FSB in St. Petersburg and Leningrad Region detained Acting Police Head of the St. Petersburg Linear Department of Internal Affairs on Transport (LUVDT) Roman Frolov.
According to Fontanka, the police officer was detained at the store Maxidom on Moskovsky Prospect when receiving 250 thousand rubles as a bribe from the businessman.
In exchange for this amount, a law enforcement source added, Frolov promised a protection to businessman. At present, the issue of a criminal case initiation is at stake.
