In Crimea, a “narcoagronomist” transported… 21 kg of cannabis in a trailer
He says he was taking it to throw it away.
In Crimea, while on duty, traffic inspectors stopped a domestic car with a trailer on the Simferopol-Nikolaevka highway, near the village of Dubki, to check the driver’s cargo and documents. The car was driven by a 36-year-old resident of Simferopol.
During an inspection of the body of the towed vehicle, police found parts of plants with a specific odor in it. The examination established that the trailer contained hemp bushes with a total weight of 21 kg. The driver told law enforcement officers that in the morning he found drug-containing plants near the house. Having loaded the seedlings into the transport, according to him, he took them to the field to destroy— said the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Crimea.
The investigation of the Department of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Simferopol region opened a criminal case under Part 1 of Art. 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The “narcoagronomist” faces punishment of up to 3 years in prison. However, if he convinces law enforcement officers and judges that he really was taking “weed” for “disposal”… Let’s not make any guesses, the investigation continues.
