A 32-year-old man named Adi Naila Buana has been arrested by Bali police after breaking into a villa and stealing electronic devices from a Swedish man.
The Head of the North Kuta Police Department, AKP Putu Diah Kurniawandari confirmed that the suspect was arrested after breaking into a villa that is located on Jalan Pura Batu Mejan Number 88A, Canggu North Kuta on Thursday morning (12/6). “The man was arrested for breaking into one of the villas in Canggu on Thursday morning around 9:00am.” AKP Putu said Tuesday (22/6).
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.
After collecting information from the scene, the officers identified the suspect from a CCTV camera in the area. The suspect was finally arrested from his hiding place in Malang, East Java on Friday (18/6) around 10:00pm. “The suspect attempted to run away to Java, but thankfully he was arrested by our officers.” AKP Putu concluded. During the interrogation the suspect admitted that he decided to commit the crimes due to his poor financial situation. The suspect has been detained along with the evidence that was collected such as the stolen laptop and cellphone.
