MOSCOW, December 22, (ITAR-TASS). Two packages with suspicious plant-based substance were seized from participants in a ‘shooting wedding’ detained in the south of Moscow, police said.
“The seized substance will be sent for checks,” the press service of the Moscow police chief directorate said, adding that the people detained in the incident had been brought to a police precinct for investigation.
One of the members of a “shooting wedding” motorcade has voluntarily surrendered a non-lethal pistol not registered in his name, Moscow police sources have told Tass.
“All in all 35 participants in the wedding motorcade were checked,” one of them surrendering a non-lethal pistol, they said. Earlier, police said more than 20 participants in the wedding motorcade detained in Moscow’s Varshavskoye Shosse roadway would be finger-printed, questioned and checked for earlier criminal records.
According to preliminary results, two packages with suspicious plant-based substance found in one of the cars were not drugs.
Earlier reports said Moscow’s police had detained a motorcade carrying wedding ceremony guests in the south of Moscow on charges of alleged shooting from their cars. Witnesses from among the drivers of other cars called the police informing them about a ‘shooting wedding,’ a police source said.
“They told police officers about a wedding motorcade comprising two Mercedeses, two Infinitis and a Porsche Cayenne that were shooting sporadically while moving along Kashirskoye Shosse Street in the south of Moscow,” he said.
