MOSCOW, December 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian narcotics squad officers have smashed an international drug ring and liquidated a major trafficking route for drugs from Tajikistan to Russia, sources from the Russian Federal Drug Control Service told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
They said about seven kilograms of heroin had been seized in the operation. Earlier, drug police learned that a group of drug dealers was ‘specializing’ on supplies of major batches of Afghan heroin to Russia, and one of the batches was about to be smuggled from Tajikistan to Russia.
“In an operation in the Pushkino district of the Moscow region, narcotics squad officers detained a courier carrying about seven kilograms of highly-concentrated Afghan heroin,” service’s sources said.
They said that judging by the way drugs were packed, drug couriers had been crossing the border with drugs stashed in false suitcase walls. Narcotics officers found out that after arriving in Russia, drugs were being brought in vehicles to the Moscow region for sale. “Search and investigation continue, police taking measures to identify all members of the criminal group,” drug police said.
