Fleeing Thief Falls Into Police Dog Kennel

A young man who robbed a Stavropol law firm where he was working as a handyman fell into a next-door kennel for police dogs as he tried to flee the scene through an open window, investigators in southern Russia said.

The man, who already had a long rap sheet, was drunk when he committed the robbery and fled in panic when he heard a noise outside, the local branch of the Interior Ministry said in a statement. He fell onto the premises of a police station right next door.

The man was detained, and a criminal case has been opened, the statement said. It did not provide the date of the incident or the name of the accused.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
