MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) — Police in Moscow detained seven members of a ring suspected of money counterfeiting. Detectives confiscated from them more than 2.5 million roubles of counterfeit money, the press service of the Interior Ministry's Main Department for Economic Security and Combating Corruption /GUEBiPK/ told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
"GUEBiPK agents, together with personnel of economic units of Don police, and the department of the Federal security Service /FSB/ for the Rostov region detained seven members of a regional criminal group suspected of currency counterfeiting and sale of fake banknotes. The group included natives of Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Armenia and Dagestan," the press service said.
Police obtained information about the structure of the group, the places of counterfeiting and schemes to sell false banknotes. "To record the illegal sale of fake banknotes, a GUEBiPK agent purchased 375,000 fake roubles from a suspect at a Moscow cafe.
"As police raided a rented apartment, they saw money counterfeiting in full swing. A search of the apartment found equipment, presses to imitate security marks, cutting machines, consumables and more than 2.5 million counterfeit roubles," the GUEBiPK press service said
The criminal case against the detainees was opened under Article 186, Part 1 /"counterfeiting or sale of false banknotes or securities"/. The investigators asked a court to place the detainees under arrest.
