Police arrests 15 people of drugs gang in Saratov
The Saratov police arrested a gang selling synthetic drugs.
A criminal case was opened against the gang members for breaking article 210, parts 1 and 2 of the Russian Criminal Code.
The gang began operating in the region in December of 2016, according to the police. It had a well-defined hierarchy. There were 'couriers' (people leaving packages with drugs in predetermined areas for customers to pick up, translator’s note), 'sales managers', and 'advertisers' in the gang.
The gang spent a portion of money made from drugs sale on procuring new batches of ingredients and paying for transportation and storage expenses, according to investigators.
The gang was arrested in the late April. The police found about 1 kilo of potent synthetic drugs during searches.
Police officers took Kristina Morozova to a police station to check her identity, where she ended up getting a closed craniocerebral injury, minor cerebral contusion, fissure fracture of her cheekbone, fracture of her left sphenoid bone, and large leg bruise.
Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
