A video of a man and his child stealing a cellphone from a local vendor in Tabanan has gone viral on social media.
An official from Bengkel Village, I Nyoman Wahya Biantara, confirmed that a thief was captured stealing on a CCTV camera on Tuesday afternoon (21/12). The victim was a local vendor named Ni Wayan Budiasih.
“This was the second time it happened to the victim. She had already lost some of her gas cans a few weeks ago before losing her cellphone two days ago,” Biantara said on Thursday (23/12).
A man and his child came to the shop and pretended to buy a rice cracker. Shortly after, the victim realized that her phone was gone, but unfortunately, the suspect had already drove off from the scene.
“The incident was caught on a CCTV camera previously installed by officials from the Bengkel Gede Village,” Biantara added.
Although the victim refused to report to authorities, Biantara insisted on doing so. During the investigation, the officers discovered that the registration number on the suspect’s motorbike was fake.
“We assume that the suspect intentionally put a fake license number on his vehicle and brought his child with him to trick his potential victims,” Biantara concluded.
