An inhabitant of the Volgograd Oblast has stolen a bridge

Bridge in Frolovo

In the Mezhdurechenskiy region of the Volgograd Oblast, police have discovered the theft of a bridge over the river Nozma, the local Interior Ministry Headquarters press service report.

The police have begun searching for the missing river crossing after the head of the village of Frolovo’s administration reported its sale. On arriving at the scene, police discovered tractor tracks which lead to one of the buildings in the village. Parts of the demolished bridge and a welding tool lay near to the building.

“The suspect is a 23-year-old man formerly convicted of a similar crime, currently on parole. He dragged the bridge to his home with his personal tractor, and broke it down using the welding tool, and he was hoping to sell it for scrap metal in the future”, the police statement says.

Charges have been brought against the young man under part one of article 158 of the criminal codex of the Russian Federation, and he risks up to two years in prison.

It is not reported whether the bridge that the residents of the village used to access a spring will be rebuilt.

He’ll find it difficult to get out of Rashka without bridges too.
