MOSCOW, January 05, 11:06 /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow narcotics squad officers have busted up a major drug pipeline supplying Afghan heroin to the region, sources from the Federal Drug Control Service said.
Drug policemen “carried out a large-scale operation to bust up a channel of heroin supplies to the Moscow region. A 30-year-old non-resident, an active member of an organized criminal group, was detained in the search operation,” the sources said.
According to police officers, heroin had been transported in a vehicle. When examining the car, they had found out that “window raisers were malfunctioning while the weight of the doors was clearly exceeding its normal weight”. After breaking the door panel open, drug policemen found drug packages. “Each of them had an Afghan marking and other marks. The total weight was more than 45 kilograms,” the sources said.
According to experts, the batch worth 1.5 million dollars would be enough for several million dozes. Criminal proceedings have been launched and the detained man was taken into custody. Measures are taken to detain other members of the group, the Federal Drug Control Service reported.
