Wanted crime lord Sych detained
He was fleeing from both police and hoods since last year.
This past Friday, police officers of the Chief Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for Moscow Oblast detained a crime lord Roman Sychev (41) aka Sych/Roma Kazansky who was was on the federal wanted list. When pulled over by police officers on 26 km of Yaroslavskoe Shosse (Yaroslavl highway), he showed the passport bearing another person’s name. Also, several blocks of heroin were found during the frisk search.
It is to be recalled that police officers stopped him in January, 2016 on M-7 highway Volga in the town of Orekhovo-Zuevo of Moscow Oblast and found the TT pistol and a sachet of spice (synthetic cannabinoids) on him. As a result, the criminal lord was taken to court on criminal charges according to part 1 of article 222 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation, or bearing of firearms) and part 2 of article 228 (illegal acquisition, storage, transportation, making or processing of narcotic drugs committed on an especially large scale). However, Sychev was acquitted and freed by the Orekhovo-Zuevo Court on December 26, 2016, on New Year's Eve.
His acquittance reportedly cost 40 million rubles ($593 thousand). Who played a significant role in it were his godfathers - crime lords Oleg Shyshkanov aka Shishkan and Sergey Stokozub aka Sergey Samarsky. However, after emerging from jail, Sych was in no haste to pay back and shortly after the Moscow Regional Court set aside the Orekhovo-Zuevo Court verdict. As a result, Sychev was put on the wanted list.
Thus, a year after, Sychev was convicted on the same criminal charges and sentenced to three and a half years of imprisonment in absentia. If he is found guilty for the second time, the term of imprisonment may be raised.
As a reminder, Sych was crowned in September, 2014 at the suggestion of Stokozub who was in jail with Sych in Tatarstan. Serega Samarsky’s initiative was supported by Kostyl, Mukha, Pan and Shishkan.
