(8/7/2011)

Police from the Kuta police precinct have arrested a Malaysian, Lee Y.S. (23), reportedly caught in the act of trying to rob a Bank Mandiri ATM located in front to the Puri Naga Hotel on Jalan Arjuna Legian, Kuta on Wednesday, July 27, 2011.

Police made the arrest at 10:00 pm after a driver reported three people acting suspiciously near the ATM machine. When police responded to the scene, two people were apprehended while a third managed to make good an escape.

When police searched the person of Lee they discovered a container of glue, a steel ruler, a blank white-colored ATM card and an electronic skimmer to read the data off credit cards. Also stopped at the scene was a woman, a girlfriend of Lees identified as Wan Y, who was later released by police due to a lack of evidence.

According to Kompas.com, when police brought Lee to his accommodation address in Bali they found a wastebasket full of torn ATM receipts collected from various bank customers.

Based on information provided by Lee, police are now searching for an accomplice named “Decco.” A search of Decco’s room uncovered a box filled with the tools used to rob ATMs.

Police are still coordinating with Bank Mandiri where a check of the ATM booth revealed a spy camera concealed in the ceiling, ostensibly used to record the secret PIN codes of ATM customers. Police found a PIN pad shield and a CCTV camera affixed with glue to the ceiling of the booth. 

An expert employed by the police explained to the press that the thieves purposefully vandalized the ATM, installing additional components to help record account and PIN details from unsuspecting bank customers.

Lee and his accomplice are believed to be part of an international crime syndicate collecting data that would permit the accounts of bank customers to be robbed at a later date. No customers of Bank Mandiri have reported a loss in connection with the arrest of Lee.

If convicted, Lee faces a prison sentence of up to 5 years.
