TUCSON - An investigation that started last year ended with the arrest of three people facing charges of trafficking stolen property.
Tucson Police received information in October that a business called Gold Time Now located at
4881 East Speedway Boulevard was buying stolen gold and other precious metals. Their newly formed Property Trafficking Unit started to investigate and over the course of several months determined Gold Time Now was buying stolen gold. They also discovered an associated business called Cash Express located at 4202 East Speedway Boulevard was also purchasing stolen gold.
On April 30, the Property Trafficking Unit, with assistance from Commercial Inspections and Investigations Unit, the Auto Theft Unit and Operations Division South and Midtown Neighborhood Crimes Sections, served search warrants at the following locations:
??Gold Time Now located at 4881 East Speedway Boulevard
??Cash Express located at 4202 East Speedway Boulevard
??City Wide Auto Sales located at 2865 North Oracle Road (Associated Business)
??Residence in the 4100 block of East Stone River Drive
During those searches, detectives recovered a large amount of gold, silver, diamonds, jewelry, cash and electronics between Gold Time Now and the Cash Express businesses. The value of property seized was estimated to be in the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
As a result, police arrested 33-year-old Albert Gavrielov, the owner of Gold Time Now. He faces 2 counts of Trafficking in Stolen Property. Police also arrested his wife, 34-year-old Anzhela Maksumova. She is charged with 5 counts of Trafficking in Stolen Property.
Also arrested was 36-year-old Moshe Biniaminov, the owner of Cash Express. He faces 1 count of Trafficking in Stolen Property.
