Khabarovsk police find drop point with 16 kilograms of drugs
The cost of the consignment could reach 45 million rubles ($800.000) on the black market.
MIA officers in the city of Khabarovsk cooperated with the local FSB to seize about 16 kilograms of synthetic drugs from the illegal turnover; the cost of the consignment could amount to 45 million rubles ($800.000), according to the Khabarovsk Ministry of Internal Affairs.
"Officers of the drug control unit of the Khabarovsk MIA found a package containing three bags of white substance in a hidden drop point in a ravine near the village of Berezovka. An examination showed that there were two types of synthetic drugs in the bundles: about 10 kilograms of ‘speed’ crystals and about six kilograms of ‘spice’ in a concentrated form. The cost of the consignment could reach 45 million rubles ($800.000) on the black market," the report said.
Later the police backed by Grom special forces from the department for drug trafficking control detained a man of Yakutia, who is suspected of having been using the drop point. It is established that the suspect brought drugs to the regional center from Yakutsk by taxi and took a room in a hotel.
"A criminal case was initiated under article Attempted Illegal acquisition of narcotic drugs on an especially large scale. The accused will be put in custody," the statement said.
Currently, investigative actions are aimed at establishing all the details of the crime.
Judges and prosecutors have got an official permission for drunk driving. The MIA has amended the new Administrative Regulations of the State Road Traffic Safety Inspectorate; its officers can not bring to liability representatives of the judicature and watchdog agency anymore. State road traffic safety inspectors can not even prohibit an intoxicated special subject from driving a car. The CrimeRussia was figuring out how judges and prosecutors managed to obtain such an immunity.
