Police find where Kursk underbosses hold their gatherings
In June 2016, the Kursk police thwarted a major criminal gathering initiated by infamous thief in law Viktor Panyushin.
The Kursk police have obtained information on the popular locations, where the Kursk thieves would have their regular gatherings. The den was a room in a garage cooperative. This is where the security forces came in the middle of another gathering.
Local authorities reported that thieves who attended the gathering were detained right there yesterday, at a special operation conducted by the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Kursk region. Security officers detained 10 local criminal leaders, underbosses of different Kursk districts. All of them had previous convictions for robberies. One of them had served a term for a series of robberies that he had committed while clad as a law enforcement officer. All of them are unemployed.
An inspection revealed 2.7 grams of heroin and 14 grams of marijuana that two of the men were carrying. Besides, a non-lethal gun was seized in the room, which turned out to have been stolen from a person of the Moscow region.
The detainees are facing criminal charges on illicit drug and arms trafficking. Currently, the investigation is looking into their possible involvement in the grave and particularly grave crimes committed in the Kursk region, as well as in other regions of Russia.
Let us recall that in June 2016, the Kursk police thwarted a major criminal gathering initiated by infamous thief in law Viktor Panyushin nicknamed Vitya Pan or Tsar. The thief chose to welcome his fellow gangsters at a cottage located in the outskirts of Kursk. There was a festive reason to reunite since the thieves were going to crown a local criminal aged 39. Or so they thought: the cops came unexpectedly, as they usually do.
According to reports, some other influential criminal lords attended the gathering. Police collared the thief in law himself as well as 11 other criminal figures, including the uncrowned thief. A personal search revealed the men had three non-lethal guns and ammunition. Administrative reports have been made on their owners under part 4 of Art. 20.8 of the Administrative Code (Violation of the rules for keeping weapons and cartridges for them).
