Police from the Gianyar police precinct on Monday, June 27, 2011, shot dead a thief suspected of repeatedly robbing tourist accommodations in the vicinity of Ubud.

Dead is 42-year-old Hari Siswanto of East Jakarta who, at 2:30 a.m. on June 27th was discovered inside a room at the Putri Ayu Cottage occupied by a Chinese tourist. When police try to apprehend the man, he attacked them with a knife. Police say they fired a warning shot which failed to halt the man’s aggression, who was then felled by a second round, which lodged in the man’s back.

According to the Bali Post, police brought the wounded man to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police described Siswanto as a man who they were seeking in connection with other thefts at the Putri Ayu Cottage and the Hotel Komaneka. In one robbery the many managed to steal Rp. 1.2 million (US$136), US$200 and two handphones.

The dead man is also suspected of involvement in thefts in March at the Tegal Sari Bugalows and Aniniraka Bungalows. The man’s thievery was captured on CCTV surveillance cameras with additional information that the man was known to frequent the streets of Ubud and Padang Galak near Sanur.

The dead man was staying in local accommodation near Denpasar. A key recovered from Siswanto’s pocket opened a room in Denpasar where stolen property and photos of a foreigner were recovered among the dead man's possesions.
