In the Leningrad region, lieutenant colonel and head of the Anti-Drug Department of the Department of Internal Affairs on transport in the North-Western Federal District has been detained on suspicion of organizing a methadone marketing channel.
As reported by the ICR press service in the Leningrad region, another suspect was detained along with him. A criminal case under part 4 of Art. 228.1 of the Russian Criminal Code (Illegal Sale of Narcotic Drugs by an Organized Group of People Committed by an Individual Taking Advantage of his Official Position, on an Especially Large Scale) has been initiated against them.
The Investigative Committee noted that it started following the suspects back in summer last year, when an unnamed citizen told the FSB about the police officer's intention to organize a drug distribution channel.
The information was confirmed after a verification, and on March 24 the suspects were detained red-handed in Gatchina. One was caught when transferring a large batch of methadone (82.55 grams) for sale, and the police lieutenant colonel was simultaneously detained in another place when receiving money for the drugs sold.
According to the St. Petersburg publication 47News, the detainee is 34-year-old lieutenant colonel Dmitry Izotov, who had previously worked for the Federal Drug Control Service since 2007. Following the dissolution of the FDCS, Izotov continued his service in the Department of Internal Affairs in the North-Western Federal District, acting as head of the Department for Combating Illicit Drug Trafficking at the Baltic Station in Gatchina.
It is also known that five former colleagues of Izotov from the Federal Drug Control Service were detained along with him and his alleged 43-year-old accomplice.
