Omsk region: deputy chief of police dept gets 7 years for attempting to sell heroin
Ivan Bugaev is to be sent to a high-security prison.
In the Omsk region, the court has sentenced former Deputy Chief of the Nazyvaevsky district police department Ivan Bugaev to 9 years’ rigorous imprisonment for preparing to sell a wholesale shipment of heroin (part 1 of Art. 30, part 4 of Art. 228.1 of the Russian Criminal Code), the press service of the ICR Investigations Directorate in the region reports.
Bugaev was detained in the autumn of 2018. 61.7 grams of drug was found on him. It was not possible to determine from whom the police officer had puchased heroin, but it is known that he had brought it to Nazyvaevsk from Omsk. In Nazyvaevsk, Bugaev was detained by officers of the FSB in the Omsk region.
The ex-policeman himself said that he had stored drugs without the purpose for subsequent sale.
Bugaev has been dismissed from the police. The Nazyvaevsky City Court forbade him to hold posts in law enforcement agencies for 10 years and deprived him of the rank of lieutenant colonel.
