Orsk: Police caught OCG with $507-thousand consignment of drugs
In the Orenburg region, police officers have detained members of an interregional organized crime group and seized 8 kg of drugs from them.
Law enforcers have detained two residents of Orsk aged 18 and 19, as well as a 33-year-old Orenburg resident.
According to the detainees, they had come across an anonymous job posting on the Internet and responded to it. After that, an unknown person sent them instructions related to the production, packaging, storage, security, and distribution of synthetic drugs.
The ‘hirer’ of the drug ring would provide them with everything necessary for the production of drugs. They hid the drugs in caches, and then notified their clients about their location over the Internet.
After the Orsk police detained them, the accomplices revealed them the location of the drugs. As a result, over 8 kg of drugs worth 30 million rubles ($507 thousand) were seized from the caches on the territory of Orenburg, Orsk, and Chelyabinsk.
The criminal case against the OCG members have been referred to the court.
The opposition leader was detained in the afternoon of February 22 in Moscow while he was walking out of a dental clinic. Navalny is accused of a second participation in an unsanctioned event, for which he faces up to 30 days of jail.
No violations have been revealed in the criminal prosecution of Colonel Zakharchenko’s family members. The appeal of lawyer Emelyanov to the president was forwarded to the Prosecutor General's Office and the ICR.
