Chernihiv region: SBU materials help to convict illegal arms and ammo dealer
In Chernihiv region the SBU materials helped to sentence to five years of imprisonment a resident of the regional centre involved in illegal trafficking in ammunition in the region.
The SBU officers established that resident of Chernihiv, who sentenced earlier for committing serious crimes, set up the channel of illegal supply of arms and ammo from the ATO area. The criminal sold the “stuff” on a by-order basis to local criminal circles.
The law enforcers detained the offender, who at that time was on the ‘wanted’ list for fraud and money laundering in the suburbs of the regional centre. During the authorized investigative actions officers seized large amount of ammo of various calibre from a stash organized nearby in the forest belt.
The court established his guilt in committing an offense under Part 1 Article 263 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
The verdict came into force.
