The offices of those arrested were searched. A large amount of money and some firearms were reported seized.
According to early information, the raids are connected with an investigation of car thefts in Western Europe and the issuance of legal papers for the vehicles in Moscow. Investigators suspect that several persons in the Safety Administration leadership are involved.
The information arm of the Internal Affairs Ministry confirmed the raid but declined further details.
