MOSCOW, October 27 /TASS/. The Russian Investigation Committee has ended a probe into a high-profile theft of a guide dog from a blind street singer in Moscow. "The investigation of a criminal lawsuit filed against a 37-year-old local woman is over. She has been charged with theft in huge amount under article 158 of the Russian Penal Code," the Investigation Committee said.
On July 9, blind invalid Yulia Dyakova and her Labrador guide dog named Diana were near the Profsoyuznaya metro station in the southwest of Moscow. Suddenly, Yulia felt a jerk. She started calling the dog but Diana did not react to her commands. Pedestrians who started gathering around Yulia said they had seen the dog with a woman near the metro. Investigators found the dog and returned it to the owner on August 6.
Viktoria Pavlenko suspected of stealing Labrador Diana was put under house arrest until October 31. She pleads not guilty.
The investigators, however, have gathered enough evidence for making the indictment and sending the criminal case to court.
