Bali police have arrested a man linked to robberies at 9 Circle K mini markets in Bali.

The man now in police custody, Kadek Wariana a/k/a Kadek Bola (21) of Jembrana was arrested by the criminal investigation unit of the Bali police at his home on Jalan Mataram in Kuta on Thursday, January 14, 2010, when police traced the man to his image on a CCTV cameras captured while he was robbing a mini-market on Jalan Cokroaminoto two week's ago. Those images, together with a license plate number noted by the market attendant, eventually brought police to the young man's door. Police lying in wait for Bola arrested him as he drove back to his home at 6 pm in the afternoon.

Quoted by, police spokesman Gde Sugianyar described the suspect a sadistic criminal who threatened his victims with a shaving knife. Most of the robberies were carried out late at night when only one attendant was on duty.

Police say the man would enter the store, pretending to be shopping, while making sure he was the only customer in the store. He would then draw his knife and order the store attendant to empty the cash register.

An average haul netted the criminal between Rp. 1 - 3 million (US$100-300).

Proceeds from his crime spree were used at local entertainment venues, shared with an older sibling and spent on gifts for his girlfriend.

When making the arrest police also seized the weapon used in the commission of the crime, Rp. 1.5 million (US$150) in cash, two motorcycles, and sets of female clothing the man planned to present to his girlfriend.
