On this occasion, a case was initiated under part 4 of Article 158 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation "Theft".

For their criminal purposes, the father and son modernized a Japanese-made minibus and domestic "Zhiguli". The windshields of the cars reclined, and the hood of the minibus was upholstered with soft material.
