The Security Service not only intercepted a parcel of hashish but also detained the recipient

In early July this year, at the customs post "Tisa" of the Chop customs during the customs inspection of a van, which had arrived from Portugal, among other parcels, officers of the Security Service of Ukraine and customs officers found in a metal cocoa can with a suspicious dark brown substance. The examination confirmed that the can contained almost 85 grams of particularly dangerous drugs - hashish.

The driver of the vehicle said that had received the package from an unknown person and was supposed to deliver it to Ivano-Frankivsk, and that he knew nothing about the contents of the parcel.

July 8, this year, near one of the gas stations in Kalush, Ivano-Frankivsk region, where the minibus had arrived, officers of the Security Service in Transcarpathian region detained the recipient of the parcel with drug.

27-year-old local resident confessed to the police that he had ordered hashish from his friend, who lives in Portugal. He planned to sell part of the narcotic drug, and to keep the rest for his own use.

The offender was informed that he was suspected of an offense under Part 2 of Art.305 (smuggling of especially dangerous drugs) of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. For this offense, the criminal liability in the form of imprisonment of 8 to 10 years is provided.

Uzhgorod City and District Court has chosen a preventive measure against the citizen of Ukraine - detention.
