BARNAUL, September 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The police have detained a suspected vandal of a remembrance cross, which was installed at the village Topuchaya in the Shebalino district in the Republic of Altai at the place of a future chapel in honour of the builders of the Chui road, a source in the republican interior ministry told Itar-Tass on Monday.

The law enforcement agencies reported that a local resident with previous convictions committed an act of vandalism. He confessed to the crime.
