Police Revved Up over Bike Thefts
Police have warned that a motorbike theft ring is targeting parked bikes in the Kuta-Legian-Seminyak area with the theft of six on Monday and Tuesday this week.
The thieves apparently want only bikes with automatic transmissions.
Five bikes were stolen on Monday, including one rented by a New Zealand tourist named by police as Hayle Patten, 22.
Patten’s Honda Vario disappeared from its parking spot in Gang Bima, Seminyak.
Another Honda Vario belonging to a local woman was stolen on Jl Drupadi, Seminyak, on Tuesday.
Police said the theft ring appeared to using fake ignition keys.Filed under: Headlines
