A police officer not only stopped an administrative offense, but also found the illegal storage of narcotics. A previously convicted resident of Mukachevo will be prosecuted.

The man was invited to the police station. While they were drawing up the protocol under Part 2 of Art. 178 of the Code of Ukraine on Administrative Offences (drinking alcoholic beverages in places prohibited by law), the man was visibly nervous, and a few minutes later, his behavior became clear. During personal inspection of the Mukachevo resident's belongings, the police officer found in his jacket pocket a syringe with a substance similar to a drug. The man explained that it was only for his own use...
As it turned out, the 33-year-old offender had had a criminal record.

This fact was registered in the Unified register of pre-trial investigations, the criminal proceeding under Part 1 of Art. 309 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (illegal possession of drugs without intent to sell) was initiated.
