Operational and detective officers of the criminal investigation unit of the St. Petersburg Linear Administration on Transport of the MIA of Russia identified and detained a citizen who was repeatedly convicted for fraud and deliberate infliction of grievous harm to health. Using a fake passport, the man was hiding from the justice authorities for about 5 years, after committing a serious crime in the Leningrad region.
On the night of November 16, 2012, the duty unit of the St. Petersburg Linear Administration on Transport of the MIA of Russia received a report on the attack on a guard for the purpose of stealing an ATM at the railway station in Mga.
As the transport police found out, three men in masks broke into the railway station building to steal the ATM. They put a sack on the head of the woman-guard, tied her hands and feet. Further, the attackers loaded the ATM into a vehicle and disassembled it in an abandoned garden plot with the help of construction tools, stealing about 4 million rubles from it.
A criminal investigation into this fact was opened on the grounds of the crime provided for in Part 4 of Art. 162 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Robbery committed by an organized group”. Two participants of this crime were detained hot on the spot and gave confessions. Two defendants are imprisoned and serve their sentences on the verdict of the court.
However, the 32 - year - old leader of the organized criminal group could not be detained for a long time. Repeatedly convicted for fraud and deliberate infliction of grievous bodily harm, a former sportsman, crafty, hard-hitting, he hid from policemen in different cities of our country, often changed mobile phone numbers and residence addresses.
Operative-detective officers of the criminal investigation unit phased out various versions of the whereabouts of the hiding suspect. The transport police staff literally followed the suspect's track, until one day they found the address of his stay. Operatives immediately left for the specified address and on the approach to the front entrance of one of the houses in the Nevsky district of St. Petersburg, he was detained. At first the man introduced himself with a different name and even showed his passport to transport policemen. Later, law enforcement officers in the course of a personal search found the passport with the name of the wanted citizen. In the course of the investigation, the police officers found that the defendant had been living with a forged passport for the last few years.
A criminal investigation into this fact was initiated under part 3 of Art. 327 of the RF Criminal Code.
In respect of the man, the court has chosen a preventive measure in the form of detention.
