Tambov: court takes policeman who tried to sell drugs into custody
By now a former officer, who was in charge of controlling drug trafficking, was caught while setting up caches with drugs.
Employees of the MIA’s Drug Control Directorate for the Tambov region detained a visiting colleague, 38, from the division for the control of drug trafficking. The ICR office for the region initiated a criminal case for the attempted large-scale sale of illegal drugs (part 3 of Article 30, paragraph ‘d’ of part 4 of Article 228.1 CCRF), the press service of the department reported. The suspect is fired and taken into custody.
According to the investigators, in the evening of September 28, 2018 in Tambov, the suspect entered a courtyard of a house on the Gastello St. and planted four caches of heroin of a total weight of about six grams. The ex-policeman was immediately detained, and the drugs were seized.
The investigation of the criminal case continues.
Vyacheslav Abroskin believes that the influence of criminal leaders extends from control over the collection of money obtained by criminal means to control in the field of energy and natural resources extraction.
