The investigative unit of the Investigation Administration of the MIA of Russia Administration for the Kaluga Region has completed the investigation of a criminal case of a series of property crimes committed on the territory of one of the automobile plants located in Kaluga.
According to the investigation, from January to June 2018, acting as part of an organized group, five residents of the Kaluga Region, being employees of an automobile plant, repeatedly committed theft of automotive components for their subsequent sale. Thus, several dozen sets of headlights, touch screens, car radios and other spare parts were stolen from the factory. The involvement of the defendants in five episodes of theft has been established.
In addition, another fraudulent scheme aimed at making a profit was built, in which four representatives of companies supplying goods for the needs of the automobile plant were involved. Individual entrepreneurs received orders for the supply of goods for which payment was received in accordance with the provided payment documents. In the course of the preliminary investigation, it was established that the financial documentation was properly executed, but the goods themselves were not delivered to the plant. The funds received to the accounts of individual entrepreneurs were distributed among the members of the organized group. During the investigation, the involvement of defendants in four similar episodes of illegal activities was proved.
The total amount of the damage caused to the plant is about 940 thousand rubles.
Currently, the criminal case on grounds of crimes provided for in part 4 of Article 158 and part 2 of Article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code has been sent to the Kaluzhsky District Court for consideration on the merits.
With respect to the organized group members a preventive measure has been chosen in the form of a subscription of their own recognizance and appropriate behavior.
