The investigation about this case began after a Swedish national named Malin Karllsson (aged 34) filed a report to the police department regarding the theft that occurred at the villa where he has been staying, causing him to lose a couple electronic devices such as a laptop and a cellphone. “After realizing that his laptop and cellphone were missing from his bedroom, the victim reported the incident to the villa’s staff before filing a report with the police.” AKP Putu added.
