Information reaching out by a local news outlet RNS, state that a former chief of Russia post local branch has been arrested by the Russia police on suspicion of running a crypto mining farm inside the office for almost six months. During the period of his mining the federal service of Starvropol territory has spent about 30,000 Russia rubles.

If you're to be the judge, how will you handle this issue of abuse of power?

I'm no judge, and I know little to nothing about law, but if you run a crypto mining farm inside the office even if you shouldn't, and especially knowing that it isn't even related to your job, that's easily theft of government resources. Assuming everything goes fairly, chances are, that former chielf of Russia is probably going to do some jail time.

Exactly. What was that guy thinking about running an obvious farm without attracting some sort of attention.

In terms of energy consumption, the case seems pretty small compared to the 60M Rubles involved in energy expensed in this 2018 case: Large Mining Farm Discovered in Abandoned Russian Factory.

The case being mention in the OP stole an equivalent of 427$ worth of energy (30K Rubles). That value won’t likely warrant much more than a fine and a repayment plan. Taking into account that the average salary for a senior police officer in Russia is of 58K Rubles per month (see http://www.salaryexplorer.com/salary-survey.php?loc=179&loctype=1&job=504&jobtype=3), the skimmed amount of energy adds up to around half of a police officer’s salary.

Will result in the loss of his job along with a repayment plan and a penalty added on top of that for using government resources. Although this could be one of the people that are made as an example to others to not try to pull this shit and more severe actions could be taken but you are probably right and the worse thing that will happen is a repayment plan with a little extra taken out of his salary on a percentage basis.

30k rubles in 6 months is just over $400. Such thing can't be even called as mining farm. 1 or 2 rigs isn't farm. What a dangerous criminal! Though, it's still crime and thst guy should be punished. I don't think that he should be sent to jail, it would too strict. IMO, best decision would be give him fine and also cover electricity expenses. But I'm not judge.
I doubt that this man was able to set up bigger farm because it barely would be unnoticed. You know, noise, significantly increased payments for electricity.

Behind the bars. Easy judgment tbh. Considering he pretty much abused his position, basically leeching off electricity from others. Sides, considering he's of a high position, I doubt the judge is going to spend much time considering how the hell did this guy even not think of the repercussions of his actions. Basically pushing his influence thinking he could get away with this. Jail time and also make him pay the ~$400 his rig spent should be enough I suppose? Though the rig he has really seems quite small, I don't even know why this made the news. The one below that talks about the miners who stole $200k a month seems more like a better option to report on than this.

Well, here the problem is he doesn't do the mining on its own house or its own installations, that was the big mistake. I think that was what the police considered abuse and the main reason to take him to jail. The profit hi made by mining will be part of the charge.

Unless he asked permission and allowed to do that, there's no problem. But it's likely the opposite and what we're all thinking are correct about what he's done.

He's doing it for free and somebody's paying for the bill so obviously, it's stealing.
