An investigator for particularly important cases established that the foreman of a fishing brigade at the beginning of 2021 in the village of Kurortnoye, Leninsky district, organized a group of five local residents for the illegal catch and clandestine sale of sturgeon fish. In the early morning of February 18, 2021, the accomplices went to sea on a small boat, pulled out 67 sturgeon, three sturgeon and two beluga from the placed nets in order to place the trophies in a cache at the pier. However, during unloading, the criminal activities of the group were stopped by employees of the Border Department of the FSB of Russia for the Republic of Crimea.

After some time, the organizer disappeared and was put on the wanted list. The man was detained by Russian FSB officers in November 2023 in a neighboring region.

The remaining members of the group were previously convicted on charges of illegal extraction and storage of especially valuable aquatic biological resources.
