Dmitry Shpakov reportedly assisted the group in their distribution of the advertising businesses in the town.
Dmitry Shpakov, the deputy head of Kashira, Moscow Region, is suspected of helping Podolskaya gang in their distribution of the advertising businesses in the town, reports Daily Storm. According to the newspaper, the detention has been officially confirmed, but the details of the case were not disclosed.
The operation to arrest Shpakov in the Kashirsa administration building was carried out by the Ministry of Internal Affairs in cooperation with the SOBR detachment. The Kashira deputy head worked in the town’s MIA department as deputy chief until 2017, after which he was moved to the administration, where he was in charge of security.
According to Daily Storm’s law enforcement sources, Shpakov helped the Podolskaya gang take over the advertising businesses in the town.
Sergei Lilakina (Luchok) is believed to be the leader of the Podolskaya gang. Sources report that Shpakov and the Kashira head Alexey Spassky were pretty close to Podolskaya. According to the Daily Storm, the group tried to squeeze the advertising market from Kashira criminals; a few cars and buildings were burned in the process.
A local businessman from the advertising industry, Sergey Klyushkin, made a police statement, while Daily Storm’s sources say Klyushkin’s businesses are also linked to mafia. According to Klyushkin, Shpakov could have been involved in the arson of his property.
