In Sevastopol, police detained a previously convicted man suspected of stealing goods from electronics supermarkets. Currently, police officers have established the involvement of the detainee in three episodes of illegal activity, which resulted in material damage in the amount of about 30 thousand rubles.
A 38-year-old local resident, previously convicted of theft and extortion, visited electronics supermarkets in the Leninsky and Gagarinsky districts of the city to steal goods.
