Policeman makes fake bomb and “prevents” explosion so that he can get day-off
The patrol officer was fired for negative reasons and fined a large sum.
Policeman from Tyumen Evgeny Kabulov reported a bomb near the dormitory of the Advanced Studies Institute of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, a dummy of which he himself had made and planted. For his vigilance, the patrol officer hoped to get an unscheduled day-off, but ended up dismissed from the bodies. Tyumen’s Kalininsky District Court fined Kabulov 200,000 rubles ($ 3,000), the court’s press service reported.
On May 21, Kabulov stickered the tag “BOMB” onto a cardboard shoebox, packed the box in a black plastic bag, wrapped it with adhesive tape and left it by one of the dormitories of the Institute, after which returned to duty.
After going around the institute, Kabulov informed the senior officer that he had found a bomb and showed his dummy. The police officers called sappers and officers other government agencies; the dormitory was evacuated.
At the trial, Kabulov pleaded guilty and said that he was repenting. He was found guilty under an article about a false report on an act of terrorism (part 1 of Article 207 CCRF).
