Silistra: Crime group involved in producing fake documents dismantled, fraud with sale of agricultural lands prevented11 July 2019 | 13:01 | FOCUS News Agency
The arrests made under the supervision of the Silistra District Prosecutor's Office were the result of a preliminary investigation by the Economic Police following a tip-off.
Yesterday, six addresses and four vehicles were searched in Silistra and Tutrakan. A fake identity card was found with data of a real person, as well as a fake general power of attorney from the same person. Credit cards, credit agreements, promissory notes, telephones, SIM cards and computers were seized.
So far it has been found that the group had prepared documents for the sale of 60 decares of land using the counterfeit ID card and the power of attorney, but the deal was foiled by the police.
Two men were detained for a period of up to 24 hours – a 30-year old and a 36-year old, both known to the police for similar offences. The credit history and other crimes committed by the two suspects is under investigation, as well.
The involvement of two other suspects as accomplices is yet to be established.
The investigation is ongoing as part of pre-trial proceedings under Art. 308 and 309 of the Criminal Code.
