PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Nearly two kilograms of gold, silver, platinum, palladium, osmium and iridium worth a total of two million roubles have been seized in Kamchatka and transferred to the state reserve by the department of the Federal Bailiffs' Service in the Kamchatka Territory, the department's press service told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The precious metals were seized from a local resident, who during half a year collected radio components (more than 60 units) containing such metals and attempted to sell them for 500,000 roubles.
Law-enforcement authorities discovered it in the summer of 2011. A criminal case was opened against the seller, and the valuables were seized as evidence.
The defendant repented. The criminal case was dismissed in accordance with the ruling of the Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky city court.
The precious metals were transferred to the Russian State Precious Metals and Gems Repository.
