I Nyoman Gede Arya Sandi (alias Paluk), a 40-year-old re-offender, was shot by officers as he tried to resist arrest for stealing a motorbike. He was jailed in the past on charges of theft and drug possession. In fact, he had twice escaped from prison and detention cell.
During the arrest on Sunday (7/1), officers shot Paluk in both legs as he resisted arrest and attempted to escape.
The Head of Public Relations of the Badung Police, Iptu Oka Bawa, explained that from the investigation, Paluk was found to have committed theft nine times in the Badung and Denpasar areas.
Additionally, he has also been jailed several times for several cases. Surprisingly, Paluk is a slippery criminal as he escaped from the detention cell and prison twice.
In 2011, the perpetrator was arrested for a drug case and instead fled from Gianyar Prison. Then, in 2014 he was detained at the North Kuta Police but escaped from the detention cell.
“Then, the perpetrator left Buleleng Prison from the Narcotics case in July 2020, with conditional release,” explained Oka Bawa, Monday (8/2).
Before his arrest on Sunday, officers began the investigation after receiving a report from a woman named Suci Ningsih.
She filed an incident about her motorbike that went missing from in front of her office on Jalan Tangkuban Perahu, North Kuta on the morning of November 20th, 2020.
It took a while for the police to trail the perpetrator, but they finally arrested him on Jalan Batanghari, South Denpasar on Sunday evening.
“When the arrest was made, the perpetrator fought and endangered the officers, so that measured decisive action was taken to incapacitate the perpetrator. Then the team took him to medical treatment,” he said.
