Slovenian at the Helm

Slovenian Tourist Arrested in Bali for Stealing Crash Helmets from Parked Motorcycles at Local Malls

(8/19/2012) A 51-year-old Slovenian national, Ivan Brezinski, has been arrested by police in Bali, reportedly caught red-handed in the act of stealing helmets from parked motorcycles at a Denpasar shopping mall.

As reported by DenPost and The Bali Post, the man was arrested at the Ramayana Mall in Denpasar on Saturday, August 11, 2012, after security guards put the man, thought to be acting suspiciously, under surveillance.

Brezinski arrived at the mall on a motorcycle, parking it in a quiet corner of the parking area. Upon returning to the parking area, the man was seen stealing the helmet owned by female dentistry student.

Security guards captured the Slovenian as he attempted to drive out of the parking lot.

Brezinski initially refused to communicate with the police, claiming he had no passport or no accommodation address in Bali.

Since the man’s arrest police have been able to develop their investigation and believe Brezinski was stealing helmets from a number of locations, including the Carrefour Shopping Center on Sunset Road. Police also postulate that the man may be part of a criminal network who disposed of helmets he managed to steal from motorcycles parked at various local shopping centers.
