Almaty police closed two websites saling ecstasy and cocaine

It is about the Internet resources, under the guise of which there were stable criminal groups. It was established operatively that psychotropic substances and synthetic drugs MDMA, ecstasy and cocaine were supplied to Almaty from the Russian Federation. "The operative and investigative ways proved their involvement in a series of drug offenses, which consisted in the distribution of drugs through the Internet, the submission of ads, the processing of orders and the delivery of goods. For potential buyers, the defendants made "bookmarks", and used a non-cash form of payment. In other criminal episodes where the suspect is a citizen of the Russian Federation who came from the Irkutsk region, the goods arrived at the addressee by means of mail messages. This drug delivery channel was tracked and blocked by us. At this stage, purposeful work is being carried out to identify synthetic drug supply channels to the region", said police colonel Azamat Sadyrov, head of the Department of Combating Drug Trafficking in the Almaty Department of Internal Affairs.
