There is speculation of a long term plan to set up legitimate enterprises that front for criminal intent by a Ukranian and Russian gang with criminal experience in their homelands. Within that scenario, the "Convenience Center" seems a perfect way to learn of, and potentially exploit, situations where business transactions had gone wrong in the Ukranian and Russian communities here or to intercede in any dispute where normally proper legal or police advice might have been needed.

It also seems that this case fits that speculative scenario very well. An unpaid debt, an intervention by a "Center" with spurious police connections, a retaliatory kidnap etc. etc.

The money involved with such a gang is likely considerable but the case has received a great amount of top brass attention and buying their way out may prove not to be in any local person's interest to allow. Just how much will get reported in the media is doubtful though as such cases move out of media's interest once the arrest headlines are over and much investigation result will logically be withheld. It would normally take weeks or months for any full trial anyway.

As I indicated, this is all speculation......
