The police officer was found guilty of abuse of office. He caused damage on overpayment for electricity due to mining for 231 thousand rubles. The man has already reimbursed this amount.
The investigation found that in February-July 2021, a policeman installed two devices in an office building that was not used by anyone, connected them to the power grid and mined cryptocurrency. Already in October, a criminal case was opened against him.
It should be noted that this is not the only such case in Russia. In the summer, for the same reason, a case was opened against the employees of the metro in Kazan. For two months of mining, they spent 352 thousand rubles of electricity.
