Moscow MIA investigator caught drug trafficking
The Moscow police have detained a group of drug traffickers distributing psychotropic substances on an especially large scale.
Officers of the Moscow Internal Affairs Directorate Drug Control Department in the North-West Administrative District have detained four members of a crime group organizing the production and sale of drugs.
The investigators found out that the underground laboratory was located in the Ermolinsky settlement in the Istra district, Moscow region. The detainees produced MDMA and amphetamines in the lab.
It is noteworthy that one of the group members worked as an investigator in a Moscow police department. The lawbreakers would sell the prohibited substances in Moscow. However, they could not encash the last batch they produced, because law enforcers searched the apartment on Berezhkovskaya Embankment, where one of the group members resided, and seized the drugs.
A criminal case under part 3 of Art. 30, item ‘d’ part 4 of Art. 228.1 of the Russian Criminal Code has been initiated against the persons detained; all four have been placed under arrest.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
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.
