In Bali with family and friends to celebrate his 70th birthday, the items went missing on June 3, 2014 from several villas high on a limestone cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean occupied by Deague’s Party.
The thieves may have scaled the 90-degree cliff to avoid detection by the Resorts uniformed security staff. A closed circuit surveillance system covering the surrounding grounds of the villas was not operating when the items went missing.
There were no visible signs of forced entry in the villas occupied by Deague and his guests, Police found no foot marks of tracks that might have been left by thieves approaching from the cliff and gardens, leading some to suggest that a duplicate key may have been involved.
A member of the Deague family said, “"We love Bali and we love the people. This is unfortunate, but it definitely wont put us off coming back."
Deague’s company – Asia Pacific Group
heads the Art Series Hotels.
Management of the villas when contacted by The Age
