Rivne Region – smuggler of precursors sentenced to 3 years in prison
Upon SBU materials, the Rivne City Court found a resident of the regional center guilty of smuggling of a large lot of pills containing pseudoephedrine.
In February 2016, at the Ustyluh checkpoint of the Volodymyr-Volynskyi Customs Station law enforcers found 11 200 pseudoephedrine containing tablets in a package from an international-service bus. Precursors weighing 6 kg were hidden in soap powder boxes.
Law enforcers detained an organizer of smuggling channel while receiving the mail. The pretrial investigation established that the drug dealer bought tablets in one of the Eastern European countries for their processing for methamphetamine and further selling.
The drug dealer was found guilty of having committed crimes under Part 3 Article 305 and Part 3 Article 311 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine and sentenced to 3 years in prison.
The verdict came into force.
