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.
A federal judge other than retired Catherine Forrest will consider the case of Razhden Shulaya, who is charged with the creation of a criminal syndicate and other crimes, in the Federal District Court of the Southern District of New York.

The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
