An American fugitive, Christian Beasley, who escaped from Bali’s Kerobokan Prison on Monday, December 11, 2017, was captured by police at mid-day Friday, December 15, 2017, on a small street in Lombok leading to the Indah Homestay where the prison escapee was staying

As reported by, police were able to track the American down based on information provided by a girlfriend when police interrogated her on Wednesday. The following day, Thursday, December 14, 2017, police were able to identify Beasely’s location in Lombok and placed him under surveillance while a team of 9 Bali policemen was quickly dispatched to Lombok.

Beasely was arrested by the police as he drove a motorcycle back to his lodgings.

After less than a week on the run, Beasely was brought back to Bali at 10:00 am on Saturday, December 16, 2017.

Beasely (32) made a daring escape on the early hours of Monday, December 11, 2107, by using a hacksaw to cut a hole in the roof of the prison in the company of another American inmate, Anthony Hoffman (57), serving a two-year sentence for robbing a number of convenience stores in Bali. reported how the two men, after managing to escape to the roof of cellblock 7 (Lovina Blok), rappelled down the outside wall of the prison using a rope they had prepared. They descended the wall, landing hard on a makeshift hut used by construction workers from a nearby project.

Startled, the project workers managed to immediately apprehend Hoffman and return him to prison authorities, while Beasley, meanwhile, managed to escape eventually making his way to Lombok
