 The Head of the Badung Public Relation Officer, Iptu Ketut Sudana confirmed that a 20-year-old man named Supriyanto and a 17-year-old student with initials EDWP were arrested after stealing a cellphone from a construction site in Darmasaba village, Abiansemal Badung on Saturday morning (18/9). “The two suspects were arrested at the scene when they came back to pick up a motorbike that they mistakenly left at the scene after stealing the cellphone.” Iptu Sudana said on Monday (20/9).

Prior to the arrest, the suspects came to the construction site that is located at a petrol station and managed to steal a cellphone that belonged to a fellow named Indrayana while he was still sleeping. “Once they managed to gain access into the building from the back door to steal the phone, they immediately ran away by foot and left their motorbike as they panicked because the victim began to wake up.” Iptu Sudana added.

Several hours later, when the officers were already at the scene to begin their investigation, the suspects were spotted at the scene as they attempted to take their motorbike back. “When we tried to collect information and evidence from the scene a few hours later, the suspects were spotted as they attempted to pick up their motorbike. And after being interrogated, they finally admitted what they had done.” Iptu Sudana concluded. Once they were arrested, the police transported them to Abiansemal Police Department to continue their investigation.

@Wayan Bo, They should be publicly caned ten lashes every day for six months. That would be a very powerful deterrent.
