The Head of the Ubud Police Department, Kompol I Made Tama, identified the suspects as Gede Wahyu Arianta (aged 23) and Feri Mananue (aged 45). Both were arrested for breaking into a villa where the coach of the Indonesian football team Bhayangkara FC was staying.

“The incident occurred on February 3, when Paul left the villa to have lunch that day,” Kompol Tama said Thursday (24/2). The villa was called the Queen Dome Villa, located in Petulu Village, Ubud.

Paul had just checked in, then he left the villa at 10:30 am to have lunch with a witness named Anna Desiree Elisabeth. A few hours later, upon return to the villa, they were shocked to see that the door was already open.

“Paul realized that he was missing USD $1,400 (IDR 20 million) cash, 2 Macbook Air laptops, and an Ipad,” Kompol Tama added.

Paul immediately called the office of Bhayangkara FC and filed a report to the police. The officers began their investigation by looking into computer stores in Denpasar. They managed to find the Macbook Air laptops at one of the stores.

This helped them identify and arrest the suspects from their boarding house in Jalan Imam Bonjol, Denpasar on February 7. “Both suspects have been detained along with evidence at the Ubud Police Department as the investigation is still underway,” Kompol Tama concluded.
