A man in Gianyar, Bali has filed a report to the police after discovering that his excavator’s components have been dismantled and stolen.


A 34-year-old man named Wildan brought an excavator to Tulikup Village, Gianyar, where he was going to start working on a project. However, he was shocked to discover that the essential components of his excavator were missing after two days.

“I was shocked when I saw that the engine and components of my excavator were already gone this morning,” Wildan said on Thursday (27/1).

Wildan took his excavator to the construction site in Tulikup on Tuesday (25/1) to start his project. He went back to the location on Thursday at 7:30 am to begin working when he saw that the essential parts of his heavy equipment were already dismantled and stolen.

He lost a total of USD $3,500 (IDR 50 million) from the incident. He immediately reported the theft to the Gianyar police department, requesting they collect footage from the CCTV cameras of a motorbike dealer located near the location.

“I can’t continue my job now, as they stole the most important part of the vehicle. But I’m sure the police will find the perpetrators if they check the CCTV cameras of the motorbike dealer near the construction site,” Wildan added.

Meanwhile, the Head of Gianyar Police Department, Kompol I Gede Putra Astawa, confirmed that they had begun the investigation. “We have received the report and the investigation is still underway,” Kompol Astawa said.

@Wayan Bo, Hopefully ?? Must have been a Tourist or someone from "Java." A Hindu Balinese would never steal anything .
