MEIMELALI.COM: Russian Expat Released After Stealing Five Helmets In Bali.
A Russian national named Ivan Kashtaev has been released by police after admitting that he had stolen some helmets in Bali.
The Head of Mengwi Criminal Investigation Bureau, AKP Wiwin confirmed that Ivan was released after admitting to stealing five helmets from the parking lot of Pererenan Beach. “We decided to release him because he gave back the helmets that he previously stole from Pererenan Beach, and he also admitted that he did it when he was drunk and depressed,” AKP Wiwin said.
The incident occurred as Ivan was going home after visiting Pererenan Beach. Instead of going straight to his villa, he decided to steal some helmets that were hung on several motorbikes parked in the parking area.
“He admitted that he was drunk that day, and he was also depressed after recently breaking up with his partner, so he spontaneously took those helmets with him” AKP Wiwin added.
Ivan also said that he only realized that he stole the helmets when he woke up the next morning and that he planned on returning them.
After receiving a report, officers from Mengwi Police Department began their investigation on Saturday morning (17/4 and found him the same day.
“Ivan already apologized for what he has done, and we decided to close the case as the victims didn’t file a lawsuit against him” AKP Wiwin concluded.
