German Woman Caught Twice on Video Shoplifting from Ubud, Bali Shop

Celine Dalkiran from Giessen, Germany Faces Prosecution for Petty Theft with Maximum Penalty of 3 Months Jail

Detik.com and a large number of national media in Indonesia report that a 23-year-old German woman from Giessen has been arrested by police in Ubud after having been caught on CCTV camera, not once but twice, stealing dietary supplements from The Green Habit Shop on Jalan Raya Campuhan, Ubud, Bali on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

Now under arrest in Ubud is Celine Dalkiran (23) who identifies herself on social media as a German triathlete and working at a clinic for psychiatry and psychotherapy.

As shown on video that now forms part of her evidence file, Dalkiran entered the shop twice at around 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm on Sunday, December 1, 2019, where, on both occasions, she was photographed placing nutritional products worth Rp. 1,440,000 into a shoulder bag before leaving without paying.

Detik.com reports that the shop circulated videos on the Internet, including clear close-ups of the woman’s face, seeking help from the public to identify the thief. This quickly led to her identification and arrest at her villa in Ubud by police at 4:00 pm on Monday.

Because the woman’s shoplifting does not cross the legal threshold of Rp. 2.5 million she faces prosecution for petty theft under Section 364 of the Criminal Code (KUHP) that carries a maximum penalty of three months in prison.

Perhaps, however, the greater punishment for Dalkiran is that her name and acts will live on in infamy on the Internet following her for all the days of her life.
