The Head of the South Kuta Police Department, AKP AA Made Suantara, confirmed that the suspect was arrested for stealing furniture and electronic devices from a villa in Jalan Blong Bidadari Number 11X Puri Gading, Jimbaran South Kuta.

“The suspect was arrested on Wednesday (5/1) for stealing and damaging equipment at the villa,” AKP Suantara said on Friday (14/1).

The suspect held a grudge when the villa management decided to lay him off. He claims that the villa did not pay his salary for three months, so he decided to steal valuable items such as the television, rice cooker, teak wood table, electric drill, and mattress. He also damaged plants along with the water pump for the swimming pool.

Once the villa owner realized that somebody had broken into the property, he filed a report to the police department.

All information led the officers to the suspect, and they managed to arrest him from his place in Ungasan, South Kuta. Meanwhile, the villa owner denied the suspect’s accusation about the unpaid salary.

“The villa owner told us that they fully paid his salary during his three-month employment,” AKP Suantara added. The suspect was detained at the police station as the investigation is still underway.
