Police managed to detain five mobsters of a gang engaged in robberies and assaults in Moldova, Ukraine and Russia.
In Odessa, police arrested the gang headed by Gregory Karamalak, a crime boss known as Bolgar. Moldova and Ukraine joined their efforts to hound the criminals. According to Publika.md, five criminals of Gagauz origin were caught red-handed. They had broken an ATM machine with 2 million Ukrainian hryvnias, nearly $2.5 thousand and 650 euros.
The gang was engaged in looting and robberies in Moldova, Ukraine and Russia. The investigators had been working on the gang for about six months. Each of the detainees has confessed.
It should be noted that Moldovan authorities once again declared Gregory Karamalak (from Solntsevskaya gang) wanted in late January 2017. Law enforcement authorities accuse him of creating a criminal gang that was operating in the 90’s. Interpol had first started looking for him in 1998. Two years ago, Deputy Prosecutor General Andrei Pantea illegally handed over Karamalak’s case to Russia. Subsequently, he was charged with power abuse and put in custody. Karamalak, along with current Balti mayor Renato Usatii backed Solntsevskaya gang in Moldova.
