The duty unit of the Kyzyl police received a statement of theft from the director of a network of cellular communication salons. She reported that at about 4 a.m., unknown persons had entered the sales office and had secretly stolen 14 expensive models of cell phones from the warehouse. The total damage caused to the organization amounted to 885,760 rubles.
