The Old Bali Blog « Russian thief arrested for stealing souvenir at Tanah Lot
A Russian man simply identified as 'Sergy', 26, was caught red-handed trying to lift a miniature wooden rickshaw worth Rp.70,000 (US$5.90) from a souvenir stall at Tanah Lot.
After trying to flee the scene, he was pursued by a gang of angry shop owners, promptly fell off his motorbike and was heavily beaten.
The police aren't letting him off nicely. Theft in Indonesia can set you back five years in the slammer.
Go, Sergy! See you during visiting hours in Hotel K!
