Russian customs disrupt smuggling of 2 kg of drugs from Peru
In Irkutsk, customs officers have seized a parcel from Peru, which contained about 2 kg of drugs.
The postal item had been sent from Peru to a resident of the Irkutsk region of Russia. The law enforcers have revealed the contraband sending as a result of investigative activities.
Inside the parcel, there were several plastic bags containing briquettes with a dark green substance of pasty consistency. They were accompanied by supporting documents, in which the sender indicated that the parcel contained 100-percent natural sulfur soap. The examination, in turn, has found that the seized substance is a narcotic drug – DMT (demythyltryptamine) – with a total weight of 1,846 grams.
As a result, a criminal case over smuggling of drugs on an especially large scale (part 4 of Article 229.1 of the Russian Criminal Code) has been initiated.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
