Yesterday in the evening, border guards of the Chop detachment prevented the illegal intention of a Moldovan citizen to import a stolen car to the territory of our country.
The 46-year-old foreigner arrived from Slovakia to Ukraine by a car "Audi" with Polish registration through the checkpoint "Uzhgorod". During the inspection of the vehicle by border guards, the vehicle was found in the Interpol database.
In order to verify the information, the border guards sent a request to the Office of the Interpol in Ukraine and received confirmation that the car was in the international wanted list. As law enforcement officers found out, the car was stolen in 2006 in the territory of the Russian Federation.
Accordingly, officers of the Uzhgorod Police Department in Transnistrian region were informed about it, and the report of a criminal offense under Art. 289 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine was sent. Following the necessary procedural actions, the vehicle left the checkpoint accompanied by an investigation team of the National Police.
