Buleleng Police are investigating the theft of cash from the hotel room of a French tourist who did not immediately notice the money was missing but reported the theft to Lovina Police later.
Guillaume Fonts, 27, was staying at the Anturan Puspa Rama hotel at Lovina when the theft occurred. He told police he believed the money was taken by a cleaner.
Fonts told police he had left the money, Rp500,000 (US$55) and €200 (Rp2.2 million), with other material on a table, when a cleaner asked him to vacate the room while it was serviced.
Buleleng Police spokesman I Nyoman Sukasena said last week the theft was being investigated. “Police do not yet know the culprit,” he said.
Fonts told police in a statement: “After the cleaner finished I was asked to check that everything was OK. But later, in the afternoon, the money was not there.”Filed under: News Alerts
