MOSCOW, July 23 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow police liquidated 67 crack houses in January-June, the head of the Interior Ministry’s Moscow chief directorate, Anatoly Yakunin, said at a board session on Tuesday.
“Along with fight against drug-related crimes, the city faces an acute problem of crack houses. In the first half of the year, police revealed 67 such crimes, and this is a fair result,” Yakunin said.
He also stressed that police have boosted work against drug-related crimes. Over the first half of this year over 5,000 such crimes have been exposed, which is 16 percent more than last year, and 42 kilograms of drugs were seized.
Although figures are quite good, Yakunin urged policemen to boost work on fight against drug-related crimes, putting an accent on seizures of major batches of drugs.
