Novosibirsk police to be sued for selling nearly 1 kg of narcotic drugs
Law enforcement officer wanted to earn 350 thousand rubles ($6.140).
The ICR completed the investigation of the criminal case against the 26-year-old ex-policeman, who attempted to sell almost 1 kg of synthetic drugs stolen from the exhibits' storage facility.
According to the investigation, in June 2016 one of the investigators of the 8th police department of the Kirovsky district of Novosibirsk placed material evidence, confiscated from the criminals - 937 grams of synthetic drugs, in the storage room. Responsible for the safety of the seized, the 34-year-old foreman of the logistics department decided to steal and sell the 'synthetics'. However, the foreman decided to turn over the deal on the sale through his colleague - a 26-year-old policeman of a separate battalion of guards and escort. In December, 2016 the officer found the buyer, who has agreed to get all the drugs for 350 thousand rubles ($6140). However, the employees of the Drug Control Department learned about the transaction. A young officer of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was detained in the act of passing drugs. On the same day, his senior comrade, who had planned the crime, was also handcuffed. A criminal case was instituted upon an attempt to sell a particularly large consignment of drugs by a group of persons on a preliminary conspiracy (part 3 of Article 30, part 5 of Article 228.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Under the court's decision, both were arrested.
During the investigation, the 26-year-old policeman pleaded guilty and testified to his accomplice. The case against him was separated. Now it has already been sent to the court for consideration on the merits.
The investigation of the case against the 34-year-old Sergeant-Major continues.
In turn, the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the region reports that both defendants were dismissed from the internal affairs agencies for negative reasons, and their immediate supervisors were brought to disciplinary responsibility.
