Moscow region: two clandestine drug laboratories discovered
Employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia Transport department in the Moscow region discovered two drug laboratories and detained three drug dealers.
According to Irina Volk, the official representative of the Ministry of the Interior of Russia, operatives detained a drug courier with a party of amphetamine during the events aimed at blocking the drug supply channels that operated on the railway transport.
When they began to interrogate him, the man surrendered his accomplices. As a result, the police managed to get on a drug band, which included citizens of Russia and Ukraine. As it turned out, on the territory of the Moscow region they organized the work of two clandestine drug laboratories, where they produced synthetics in especially large amounts, and then delivered by rail to a number of regions of Russia.
During the searches in the drug laboratories, law enforcement officers found and seized about 1 kg of amphetamine ready for shipment. Also, operatives discovered precursors, which are necessary for the manufacture of large quantities of drugs. According to the facts, a criminal case was initiated under part 5 of Art. 228.1 of the Criminal Code.
To date, three suspects have been detained in this case, all of them confessed to the crimes committed. Now the law enforcers continue to work on installing other possible drug trafficking channels in other regions, as well as individuals who may be involved.
The deputy director of the institution Imuschestvo (Property), Alexander Ivanov, and deputy director of the property fund of St. Petersburg, Ilya Zhinkin, gave companies the pre-emptive right to buy out the areas on Nevsky.
