Standing on the Loja (auto)

Recently, amateurs have become more active in earning fake accidents. On this criminal field, "work" entire gangs. One such group of auto-extortioners was neutralized by the RUBOP officers of the Moscow region.
Impressions from this operation are shared by the immediate participant.

Thunderstorm "Dummies"

Accident

... We are at the detention ... We are two operational crews in inconspicuous cars, dissolved in the car traffic of Moscow region Lobny ... Probably, this is not going well with us, because in the raucous air of the radio station, the irritated: " First, you flash like naked in the desert ... They will draw you ... Leave the first row ... Go, I say ... Even faster ... "

The head of the operation, we feel, at the same time, gloomy and passionless. Gloomy because we have been on the tail of the client for four hours, and so far, to no avail. And passion, oddly enough, he owes the bandits. Obliged because those are cunning, insidious, ruthless ... Obliged because to take them is a matter of his honor ...

Those who are in desperate need of us today are called in the jargon "Podstava v loha". Simply put, they stage auto accidents. Almost three-year fishing for this gang is veiled so much that no line of the Criminal Code does not treat it as a crime. Although this craft is a trivial extortion.

Today, this "craft" has blossomed on the roads of Moscow and the region. Over the past decade, this is the third wave of the so-called pseudo-accident, the participants of which every day become hundreds of car owners. Interior departments are literally filled with applications of citizens who committed accidents at the whim of ordinary "substitute teams" Only in one of the metropolitan districts registered about 40 calls of drivers who belatedly realized that they had paid their money to elementary extortionists ...

And the first boom of such accidents occurred in 1991-1992. Then the bandits felt quite free on the roads, but as the number of autoliths almost equaled the number of their potential victims, the business began to decline and again blossomed already in 1997-1998. But it was at this time that the peak of the anti-mafia struggle came, so that the groups almost immediately subsided. Today the shaft of the pseudo-DTT again rolls along the highways, sweeping away from the wallets usual drove thousands of dollars.

Criminals snatch money on a well-established scheme that has been tested for years by the suckers. That is, on the "teapots" and owners of cars of the average hand - not the first freshness of "Audi" and "Mercedes", as well as domestic cars. By the way, the entire Moscow ring road is divided between different groups specializing in a certain contingent. Bandits most of his aces - of those who at the speed of holding the matchbox on the hood of his car. After all, even the most common "setup" requires special filigree. This is when, using the "dead space" mirrors, the autoshiper fish-sticking sucked in to the victim, and even the uncomplicated maneuver of the latter inevitably leads to a collision. There are simpler options, but no less inventive. For example, an expensive foreign car flies to the looha, the driver of which convulsively signals and winks headlights - say, give way ... The motorist nervously tries to execute the maneuver, moves to another lane where the "stand-up" has already lain. Accident, it's done ...

Guilty without guilt

- "The first, work ... - the long-awaited breaks into the air. - Readiness ... Now we are eyes gobbling up our counterpart. This local merchant is a real success for us. Literally the day before, two childhood friends appeared with a proposal, from which, in their opinion, he simply had no right to refuse. Guests tried to drag it into a share - use a personal "Mercedes-280" for the base. But, according to the entrepreneur, he rejected the offer, and then, having fished out a rifle from the bag, they demanded the keys to the car. Say, you do not want to, we somehow do it ourselves, but give it to Mers ... Kommersant collapsed on his knees, referred to a business trip, begged for a respite. Those promised to call in later, and the businessman rushed to the Moscow RUBOP. Naturally, when witnesses get behind the wheel of someone else's machine, bandits will not - they are likely to lie in a deserted place. But the bleed is serious: it means that the criminals are going to go to the end ... Here are your childhood friends ...

... Another exotic way to "set up". At the turn is a car. An experienced driver will immediately determine the "kettle". It's barely moving, the letter "U" on all the rear window, turned on the turn signal ... The traffic light has allowed movement, the "kettle" has gone, you are behind it. Themselves, of course, look to the left - as though who did not take off. And suddenly - bang. It turns out that the "kettle" does not go anywhere and is not going to be, it's as if dead. And you are caught ...

- Food, ahead of a typical "teapot", such a shovel - this is in the car the experienced operative shares. - It travels at a speed of 40 kilometers - no more. And I, as a sin, hurry. And it was happening on the road, where the speed of 40 kilometers is harmful to health. I'm trying to get around him and trying to avoid him, and he does not concede anything either ... I'm dying to overtake - and on you ... I'm looking at the "Audi-80" on the left, and my "nine" just to her right wing ... Where did it come from, I really do not understand. We drove off, we talked. In the evening he paid - $ 700 gave ... In the department, then they laughed for a long time - it's necessary, the policeman bucks for bucks ... Well, if one of them meet today, hold on ...

... They took our merchant from the Cannon. This is the name of the memorial in the center of the city. The bandits gave BMW a green color. He moves behind the businessman as if on a long leash. It seems that our ward also noticed the criminals and, not knowing about us, clearly nervous. He somehow thinks that we should fall on the hood of the bandit machine from the sky ... But the opera is not gods, but the businessman's nervousness is even good for us - let everything be more natural ...

When Loch understands what happened, at first he calmly leaves the car and inspects his car. Indeed, in most cases the feeling is that the collision was innocent. But when it comes to someone else's car, the face of the culprit involuntarily stretches out - that car is like a tank rammed ... "The grief-stricken owner of the foreign car starts to cling to his head.

"My God, the last model, but where can I get the money now? .. Where?" What do you think, man ...

- And how much?

-- How many? Yes, went to any car service, less than seven hundred bucks will not break ... Still missing, everything that is acquired by excessive work ...

- Yes, it's expensive ... - sighs the culprit - but now the traffic police will come, we will understand ...

- Yes you Th, you think, they will mess with you? Let's settle on the spot - and run away. Yes, Vas?

As a rule, at this moment a twisted car appears from the crumpled car. The convincing argument for the calculation on the spot, you see, you can not find ... If there is no money, then the driver is given time until evening so that he can save his relatives by collecting the required money.

True, this is when the "culprit" of the accident is agreeable, but if he resists, he is taken to hunting in a service where for a long time specialists working for the mafia will quote the brothers word for word.

"Listen, bro, or maybe it's not your car?" - Suffer the narrow foreheads. "Well, show me the documents."

Offended to the depths of the soul, the driver holds out his rights and technical passport. Now he's on the hook - the bandits at the moment are drawing a name. address ... And the next conversation with the disobedient will happen already at the entrance of your own house ...

And what about the traffic police? Employees of the inspection come to the scene of the accident, draw a diagram according to which the fault of the "teapot" is obvious ... As a rule, auto inspectors do not mind if the participants sort out each other on the spot ...

Storm...

Something they went after him for a long time. The city line is far behind, Sheremetyevo-2 soon looms. So far no encroachments. "Maybe just watching? They'll wait, they'll take a tiny one to the house and take them there, "someone in the cabin drops. We do not want this devilishly. Because criminals are armed and can easily open fire during detention. People will suffer ...

By the way ...

Extortion, that is, the requirement to transfer someone else's property under the threat of violence, and moreover committed by a group of persons by prior conspiracy, is punishable by imprisonment for a term of seven to fifteen petitions with confiscation of property.

Bandits are extremely choosy. As frontmen they use mainly "Mercedes-140, -201, -124", "Audi-80, -100" ... Thus, involuntarily put pressure on the psyche of the victim. First, tangible belonging to crime, and secondly, the magnitude of the "damage". By the way, they are masters of fiction - they can give out their foreign car for a supermodern model - stick labels on the trunk of other cars. The real price of these cars varies within 5-6 thousand US dollars, but already for a scratch bandits demand from 500 to 1000 "green". Only one day of work brings bandits to ten thousand bucks.

... But all fears disappear, as soon as the escort leads the Mercedes-580 on Starosheremetevskoye Highway. We are guided on the terrain - the village of Klyazma, turn to the rest home "Olimpiets". Apparently, the bandits, and their seven, take the last note. "Merc" brakes and brakes sharply back, cutting off our merchant. He stops. And immediately in the bumper rests "BMW." We are already on the way and see how the cars that organized the "box" run out of the bandit and burst into the salon to the businessman. One has a cut-off. He jumps into the front seat, the accomplice already claps the back door. Kommersant falls out onto the road. The other cars slowly begin to move, waiting for the captured car to smoothly fit into the column. They do not hear a short: "Storm", which with some degree of calm sends the head of the operation on the air. On afterburner we fly up to the bandits. The second crew immediately rushes in pursuit of the "BMW" and "Merc", rushing headlong along the highway. The prerogative of our team is armed robbers. Noticing us, they jumped out of the car with a bullet and now run away in different directions. The first strives to take cover behind a shopping tent on the roadside, the second rushes to an abandoned farm. We try to get him in the ring, trying to stretch the legs that are stuck during the shadowing. The bandit understood this, and, turning on the run, going to saddle in us from the edge. The opera pulls out the trunks, and just above my ear one of the operatives fires twice into the air. However, the bandit nachhat. Well, a duel ... For some reason, I clearly notice how the trouser trouser trousers twitched. He stumbles on a shot through his leg and falls to the ground. Lateral vision I see how the second bandit falls face down. He was not shot, he just realized - no sprinter has ever overtaken bullets ...

"An ambulance," growls the head, "in a flash ..."

Sharply flies nurse. The bandit moans softly on the ground. A few minutes later he fell into the ambulance. "Nothing, the bullet went right through," the opera jokingly mocked, "but they will be treated for free ..." A young doctor, embarrassed by so many assistants, pulls the wound. Bandit wincing, but, apparently, more for the species, it seems - a 25-year-old Roman, lives in Lobnya, is not judged. "But this business is fixable," retorts one of the operatives. "Do you work long hours on" podstavah "?" The detained frowns on his forehead: "For two years already ..." His partner, Yakov, is much more modest in his conversations: has a course, but, as they say, the investigation will not rust.

A crow flies next to the crow. The weapon is serious - the bandits built it out of Mosin's rifle and made a significant improvement: they adapted the Kalashnikov assault rifle to the store. Now, without stinting, the cutoff could be equipped with ten cartridges ...

For today, everything ... The opera is leaving with the detainees. Apparently, the dream is canceled ... But one of the drivers on the evening track today lucky - one pseudo accident will definitely not happen ...
