Under the procedural guidance of the Sumy Regional Prosecutor’s Office, a former law enforcement officer who tried to organize the smuggling of psychotropic substances in particularly large quantities was notified of suspicion.
According to the investigation, the suspect, who lives in Kyiv, planned on a permanent basis to move a particularly dangerous psychotropic substance – mephedrone – across the border of Ukraine in the Sumy Oblast, outside of customs control, into the territory of the Russian Federation. The suspect involved a resident of the border region of Sumy Oblast in the smuggling of psychotropic drugs.
During the special operation, law enforcement officers prevented the creation of a smuggling channel and seized almost 3.5 kg of a psychotropic substance, which they planned to smuggle illegally through Kodon and hand over to accomplices from Russia. Currently, the suspect has been remanded in custody without bail.
The pre-trial investigation is carried out by the Office of the Security Service of Ukraine under the procedural guidance of the Prosecutor’s Office.
