Policeman held for grand fraud in Moscow

Moscow Main Investigations Directorate of the Russia’s Investigative Committee has launched a criminal investigation in a crime under part 4 of article 159 of the RF Penal Code (fraud on a very large scale).

According to investigators, in the period between March and April 2012, Deputy Chief of one of the departments at the Main Directorate for maintenance of public order and coordination of interaction with executive authorities in the federal subjects Andrey Glukhov decided to steal money on a very large scale from the wife of the man prosecuted by the Investigative Committee for murder. To do that, Glukhov persuaded the man’s wife if she gave him at least 4 million rubles, he would get her husband from prison. The deceived woman gave the money via an acquaintance of hers, but Glukhov took it and spent on his own needs.

The fraud was identified and held 3 years later thanks to coherent operation of officers of Moscow Main Investigations Directorate and operative services.

At present Glukhov has confessed to the crime. Necessary investigative operations are underway to find out all the circumstances of the crime. Soon Glukhov will be charged and placed in custody. The investigation is ongoing.
