BARNAUL, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— A deputy warden of the 5th penitentiary in the Altai territory was sentenced to five years in prison on Friday for attempting to take a bribe, exceeding his authority and storing narcotic drugs, the territorial office of the Russian Investigation Committee told Itar-Tass.
Vyacheslav Cherdantsev met with a drug peddler in Rubtsovsk by request of a penitentiary inmate. He agreed to bring the drugs and other prohibited items to the convict. The police seized Cherdantsev last December. His car was carrying about 60 grams of hashish, over 40 grams of marijuana, seven cell phones, nine microchips and cell phone batteries.
