Teenagers attack with office of microloans in St. Petersburg with gun
Police detained two 15-year-old offenders with a Makarov pistol.
Two teenagers robbed the Rosdengi microfinance office in the Frunzensky district of St. Petersburg: one shot a Makarov pistol at the ceiling, the other took money from the cashier. In total, the attackers took 3,000 rubles ($50), during the spending of which they were caught by the police, reports Fontanka.
The message about the attack on a microbank on Bely Kuna Street was sent to the duty station at 15:30 on March 22. The police quickly found the suspect, confiscated a combat pistol from one of them and brought the teenagers to the police station to testify.
According to the portal 78.ru, both detainees are 15 years old. The media published a video of the robbery recorded by a surveillance camera.
Several new criminal cases against corrupt officials have been instituted in Dagestan. The high-ranked suspects include Abdulmedzhid Suleimanov, ex-Mayor of Izberbash; Amir Magomedov, ex-Head of the Izberbash Administration; Magomed Dzhelilov, Head of the Derbent District; and El’dar Karagishiev, Head of the Babayurt District. In the past, all of them were suspected of similar crimes – but somehow managed to get off the hook. The new arrests occur amid the anti-corruption campaign in the republican law enforcement structures. What are the true reasons behind the new wave of the personnel purge? Can the anti-corruption slogans conceal a fierce battle waged by local clans for redistribution of assets with the purpose to create a new ‘untouchable’ elite in Dagestan?
