Operatives detained in the Stavropol Territory a citizen suspected of fraud in a particularly large amount

The duty-unit of the MIA of Russia Division for the city of Pyatigorsk, received a statement from a citizen that fraudulent actions had been committed against him.

The police found that in Summer of 2017 a resident of the Predgorny District, under the pretext of developing business, borrowed a million rubles from the victim. The man promised to return the money in two months, confirming the profitability of his business by demonstrating the allegedly purchased land plot. After the end of the agreed term, the citizen did not return the loan and stopped the communication with the lender.

During the complex of operational-search activities police officers established the location of the suspect. The 34-year-old man was detained and taken to the city police division, where he explained that he had disposed at his discretion of the money received.

Criminal proceedings were instituted on the grounds of the crime stipulated by part 4 of Article 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Fraud committed on an especially large scale”. The sanction of this article provides for maximum punishment in the form of imprisonment for up to ten years with a fine of up to one million rubles. At present, the suspect has been detained under Article 91 of the Code of Criminal Procedure.
