Drug dealer from Russia wanted for 5 years detained in Thailand
A native of Chelyabinsk has been detained at the request of the Russian Interpol bureau.
In Thailand, the police have detained a native of Chelyabinsk, who had been hiding from the investigation for five years. The man is suspected of drug trafficking, according to the website of the MIA Main Directorate in the Chelyabinsk region.
According to the message, in 2013, the man was detained “when trying to sell a drug containing amphetamine.” A criminal case was initiated, and a preventive measure of a written undertaking not to leave the place was elected for him.
However, the man managed to leave the country, after which he was declared wanted by Interpol. As a result, he was detained in Thailand and deported; February 17, he arrived in Moscow.
Now the detainee is charged with part 3 of Art. 30 (Preparations for a Crime, and Attempted Crimes), item ‘b’ part 3 and item ‘d’ part 4 of Art. 228.1 of the Russian Criminal Code (Illegal Making, Sale or Dispatch of Narcotic Drugs, Psychotropic Substances or Analogues Thereof, as Well as Illegal Sale or Dispatch of Plants Containing Narcotics or Psychotropic Substances, or Parts Thereof Containing Narcotics or Psychotropic Substances).
In the 2000s, Western Europe had welcomed refugees from Chechnya. In 2018, it has finally realized the criminal potential of dozens of thousands of mountain dwellers who had left their native land because of reprisals and economic disorder. Many of those who had fought against the Russian army in the first and second Chechen wars and their grown-up children skilled in weapons and practicing martial arts have united into street gangs. The CrimeRussia was figuring out why the Germans and Austrians don’t feel themselves comfortable in their countries anymore.
