SBU uncovers mechanism of drug supply to Chernihiv Pretrial Detention Centre
The SBU officers in cooperation with the internal security unit of the National Police Office under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor’s Office uncovered the mechanism of drug supply to the Chernihiv Pretrial Detention Centre.
The law enforcers established that the officers of the criminal investigation office of the Chernihiv district police unit in the line of orders of the leadership under the guise of conducting investigative actions transported prisoners outside the detention centre. While transporting detainees, security guards gave them lift to drug caches. Then suspects hustled “goods” in the Pretrial Detention Centre.
The SBU officers detained two police officers and the prisoner on the territory of the detention centre on attempt to hustle the next consignment of drugs.
The urgent investigative and operative actions initiated in the frameworks of the criminal proceeding under Part 2 Article 307 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine are under way.
