Penza, 29 June 2015. PenzaNews. Four men aged 20 to 25 were detained in Penza on the accusations of preparing a large-scale illegal drug sales operation.

“They were organizing shipments of drugs from Moscow to the Penza region since May 2015, and distributing them through Internet through a stash system without ever meeting their customers,” the press service of the regional Ministry of the Interior informed PenzaNews agency on Monday, June 29.

The police seized over 10 kilograms of synthetic drugs already pre-packed for distribution hidden in flats and garages rented by the suspects in Penza and Moscow, the officials noted.

“The detainees are currently under arrest until the court hearing. They may face life imprisonment for their crime,” the press service said.
