Police captain accused of drug trafficking released from jail
An operative with 13 years of experience allegedly collaborated with heroin addicts to increase the number of solved crimes.
The captain of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Vadim Belov, who is accused of organizing the sale of drugs through an online store, was released from the SIZO under house arrest after eight months in custody. The decision of the Kanavinsky District Court of Nizhny Novgorod was made on the basis of the same arguments that sounded before Belov was sent to the SIZO, Mediazona reports.
According to the investigators, Belov conspired with a Nizhny Novgorod convicted and heroin-addicted, who was inclined to create a drug shop in the Telegram messenger. The attackers posted data on the stash of drugs, the total weight of which exceeded 2.2 kilograms. Belov learned about the chat in the course of operational work and wanted to provoke drug addicts to buy drugs - alpha-PVP - to detain them later.
At the time of his arrest, the operative was the head of the department for combating crimes in the sphere of drug trafficking of the Central Administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Nizhny Novgorod region. At the time of his house arrest, he was forbidden to leave his home, use means of communication, the Internet and e-mail, and communicate with people.
The detention is related to the investigation into the abduction and murder of Tatyana Sidorova, a deputy of the Ramenskoye District Legislature, and three members of her family, which occurred back in 2012.
