MOSCOW, February 28 (RIA Novosti)
Three years behind bars is a high price to return a missing jacket, but it all depends on how you look for it.
A resident of Bryansk region alerted police about a bomb in a Moscow subway station, but what he really wanted was for them to find his jacket, the capital’s police said on Tuesday.
The unnamed 18-year-old left the jacket put in a bag with his passport in a pocket at a station, police said on their website, without specifying the station.
Fearing that his belongings would be stolen, he called the police to inform them about a bomb in a bag. A police patrol promptly retrieved the bag, but found the jacket instead of explosives, the report said. It said the incident took place on Monday evening.
The Bryansk resident admitted to faking the alert and voluntarily turned in the cell phone he used to make the call, the report said.
He might have been better off looking for the jacket himself, given that he faces up to three years in prison for the prank. An investigation has been launched.

Ukraine has not preserved its 1991 borders. The signing of the Geneva memorandum on April 17 reaffirmed the willingness of Russia, the United States and EU countries to reach a compromise. While the sides continue to trade tough talk and symbolic sanctions, the Kremlin and the White House are also holding a parallel dialogue on the coordinated geopolitical revision of Eastern Europe.
