Bali Police has arrested a burglar and a fence in connection with a series of robberies at villas in South Bali.

On Sunday, June 15, 2014, police apprehended Khoiri, also known as Hairi (29), in Singaraja, North Bali.

Police claim the man resisted arrest requiring police to shoot the man in his right leg to prevent his escape.

The man is linked to thefts at villas in Bali occurring between October 2013 and June 2014.

The arrest of Hairi resulted from information collected in an earlier arrest on Thursday, May 15, 2014, of Hemdi Lele, also known as Mendik (44), a fence dealing in stolen merchandise in Denpasar. In arresting Mendik, police recovered three hand phones and three laptop computers. During interrogation, the fence fingered Hairi providing the information that led to his arrest.

Once in police custody, the wounded thief admitted to robbing 11 villas located in Ungasans including Villa Kandara, Villa Cetu The Bali Ungasan and the Alila Uluwatu. Stolen in the heists were money, jewelry and electronic devices.

Hairi also admitted to robbing student accommodation at Udayana University in South Bali, making off with computers and hand phones.

The modus operandi of the thief was to survey his targets, wait for the occupant of the villa to go to sleep and then use a screwdriver to open a window so he could quietly steel items while his victims slept.
