MOSCOW, September 21 (Itar-Tass) — A serviceman in Tver is charged with stealing almost 500 artillery shells.
Warrant officer Denis Sadykov, as an aide of a senior officer in charge of storage, from August to December 2011, participated in work to transport ammunition and remove waste.
Sadykov knew where ammunition was kept. He saw that it was not guarded properly and the command did not control it. The warrant officer, using the situation, began to regularly steal artillery shells of various calibres. He took ammunition to his personal garage, where he removed powder, charges and fuses, and sold empty brass shells to nonferrous-metal-receiving stations.
During the months, he stole 485 various-calibre shells worth over 740,000 roubles, the press service of the Russian Investigative Committee's main military department told Itar-Tass.
Besides, in May last year, when the officer commanded a unit of young soldiers and taught them how to handle a submachine gun, he struck soldiers with a wooden stick.
The Tver garrison's military investigative department has brought charges of ammunition theft and power abuse against Sadykov.
The investigation is completed, and the case is referred to the Tver garrison's military court.
