MOSCOW, March 6 (Itar-Tass) — Russia's Supreme Court upheld the verdict for Valery Yegorov, a member of the gang that stole 6.9 million roubles in an armed attack on money collectors in Moscow, an official at the Prosecutor General's Office /PGO/ told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
The investigators said Yelin was a member of the gang set up by Vadim Parshin, Andrei Borisov and Ivan Matveyev /it included another three persons/, which attacked money collectors of the Yuzhny Dvor company in Solnechnaya Street near the Tsaritsyno subway station on December 30, 2008.
After shooting at the money collectors, they stole money bags containing over 6.9 million roubles. One of the money collectors died and another was wounded. Their two colleagues managed to hide from fire.
Yelin was sentenced to 24 years in jail. His lawyer appealed the sentence at the Supreme Court, which left the verdict unchanged.
Yelin's six accomplices were sentenced by the Moscow City Court to long prison terms ranging between 14 and 21 years on April 6, 2010.
Earlier reports said the gang included former police officers.
