Young resident of Khust robbed his neighbor who trusted him

Khust district police officers solved this crime in "hot pursuit", the offender confessed to the crime and now will bear criminal responsibility

Recently, a 41-year-old woman reported to Khust police that under strange circumstances, the money amounting to about 4,000 UAH had been withdrawn from her credit card.

The victim lives alone with two small children. After the birth of her son, she has been receiving social assistance from the state, also the alimony from her ex-husband is credited to the card.

 A 21-year-old unemployed Ivan lives next door to her. The woman occasionally would ask his help in exchange for money and food. The neighbor knew that the woman had money on the bank card and was tempted by it...

    One morning, the woman checked her purse and found no credit card...

She ran to the bank to report that the card had been stolen and that it needed to be blocked. But in the bank she was told that all the money from her card had been withdrawn... After a while, she found out the absence of her other bank card.

The woman in despair appealed for help to the police. The policemen immediately suspected the said neighbor of the victim. This young man was previously convicted. A detective of the Criminal Investigation Yuriy Dzyabko met him, and Ivan admitted that it was him who had stolen the cards and the money from them.

The investigator registered this incident in the Unified register under Art.185 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine "Theft". During the preliminary investigation, it was revealed that last year Ivan had been sentenced by Khust district court under Art. 190, Part 2 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (fraud) to two years probation. However, he again committed the crime. So, now he will be imprisoned...
