Moscow police detains suspect in $ 123000 bank robbery
The offender tied the bank employees, threatening them with a dummy grenade and pistol.
The Moscow police detained a 48-year-old suspect in a bank robbery, who stole 8 million rubles ($ 123.000). During the search, 5 million rubles ($ 77.000) were found at the man, and in a cache in the forest – dummy grenades and an analog of a non-lethal gun, which the suspect used to threaten the bank’s employees, the official spokeswoman of the Russian MIA Irina Volk reported.
The employee of the bank on Azov Street reported to the police. According to her, an unknown person tied up the employees, took the keys to the safe from them and escaped with the money. The investigation initiated a criminal case over robbery (para. 4 of Article 162 CCRF). Later in Zelenograd, the police detained an unemployed Muscovite.
General’s son Mikhail Sal’nikov, Professor of the Department of Theory of Government and Law at the St. Petersburg University of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation, has been detained for real estate fraud. Amid other corruption crimes hitting the headlines, this offense does not seem a high-profile one. But the point is that this is not the first criminal case instituted against professor Sal’nikov, and he is not the only relative of MIA general Viktor Sal’nikov having problems with the law.
