Criminal lord Israyel Sargsyan (a.k.a. Iso), who was detained over murder of Artur Safaryan, the brother of the well-known kingpin Tevosik, was taken into custody on February 6, the press service of the Armenian Police reported.
It is noteworthy that Iso is charged with illicit possession of arms (Article 235 of the Armenian Criminal Code), not murder. Meanwhile, a few days ago the police reported that on February 3 Israyel Sargsyan was taken to the police on the charge of Artur Safaryan's murder committed on January 27.
In the process of the bodily search, the police found a Beretta pistol and sent it for examination. The suspicions about the murder of Tevosik's brother were not verified. Now Iso is charged with illicit possession of arms.
