VLADIVOSTOK, January 17 (Itar-Tass) – The police in the Primorsky Territory exposed a criminal group, which was stealing the metallic structures from the construction site of a bridge on the Russky Island. According to the preliminary reports, the damages inflicted by the criminal group reached about 96 million roubles, spokesperson of the police department in the Primorsky Territory Yevgeniya Sokovishina told Itar-Tass on Thursday.

In the measure of restraint their confession, the voluntary turning in the police and the active assistance to expose and investigate the crime were taken into account,” Sokovishina said.
