MOSCOW, March 29 (Itar-Tass) — Two suspected organisers of a raid on a warehouse in Khimki, in which five criminals were shot dead and three detained have been detained in Moscow. Law enforcement agencies told Itar-Tass that the operation was conducted by officers of the Moscow region’s criminal investigation department and the Federal Security Service (FSB).
The police source specified that the suspects are natives of Dagestan. They are currently being interrogated.
The attack on a warehouse in Zavodskaya Street in Khimki was staged on February 29. Police officers received information about a planned robbery of a commercial company’s cash office. “Operatives of the criminal investigation department and fighters of the Interior Ministry special forces laid an ambush on the second floor of the company building and placed there a dummy simulating a security guard. When the criminals went up and fired a shot at the dummy, the police asked them to surrender; however, in response the gangsters hurled two explosive devices at the policemen. One of the explosives wounded a fighter of the police special force. Five criminals were shot dead on the spot by return fire and three others were detained during a chase,” the Moscow Region police said earlier.
All the detained persons come from the Caucasus republics. Operatives seized three Makarov pistols at the crime scene.
Criminal proceedings were instituted over the robbers’ assault under two articles of the RF Criminal Code: “Armed Robbery” and “Offering Resistance to Law Enforcement Officers.”
