Crime briefs: printing money and two alcohol-related shootings ({{commentsTotal}})

Harju County Court sentenced a man to two years in jail for forging money by printing pictures of 100-euro notes.

As the 26-year-old man was already serving a three-year suspended sentence for robbery, he will be jailed for a total of five years.

The man, named Siim, and his 29-year-old accomplice Vladimir, printed 13 100-euro notes on a A4 piece of paper, turned the sheet around and printed the other side. They then purchased a camera and a smart phone from private sellers. Vladimir received a two-year suspended sentence.


Police special forces were scrambled on Sunday noon to a street in Tallinn close to Toompea after shots were heard.

According to a police spokesman, three shots were fired at a house, breaking one window. No one was hurt.

Police arrested a 43-year-old man and confiscated a Makarov firearm. Police said the incident happened after alcohol was consumed adding that there is no reason to believe the shots were aimed at anyone.


Police began an investigation on Saturday following a shooting in the Lasnamäe district of Tallinn. Allegedly a man shot his neighbor in the stomach after a brawl. The neighbor was taken to a hospital while the alleged shooter also needed medical attention.

Marie Aava, a spokesman for the police, told Postimees both events were alcohol-related and the first week of each month is usually busier for police as people receive their pay checks and have money to buy alcohol.
