GROZNY, August 9 (Itar-Tass) — Chechen police seized almost three kilograms of heroin, a record haul for the republic, the press service of the republic's Interior Ministry told Itar-Tass. The narcotics were seized during the Mak-2012 operation in the Shelkovskoi district.

"Police detained a local resident in the village of Shchelkovskaya as they were checking a tip. The resident, aged 41, had three kilograms of heroin on her. The narcotic was confiscated," the Interior Ministry said.
