VOLGOGRAD, January 02, /ITAR-TASS/. The police in Volgograd detained a telephone terrorist who had reported an explosive device installed in a bus, a representative of the local police, Svetlana Smolyaninova, said on Thursday.
“On January 1, the police learned from a caller he was preparing an explosion of a bus in the region’s Yelansky district,” she said.
The police began immediately checking all the buses and bus stations in the district, but did not find any explosive devices there.
The police together with the security service identified and detained the caller. He is a man of 24, who has been convicted several times earlier.
The caller confirmed he was drunk as he called the police, and by giving the information about an explosive device he wanted to “keep up his spirits.”
The police opened a criminal case, where the punishment may be either a big fine or a term of up to three years.
Smolyaninova said the police had received over 50 calls from watchful citizens. “People inform us on suspicious objects and persons. The police check all the information.”
She mentioned also the Vikhr (whirl) - Antiterrorist mission in the region, where over 5,000 police and military had been participating. It began immediately after the explosions in a trolleybus and in a railway station.
