The victim’s story

The theft victim, Rangga (17) previously explained that the theft of his vehicle occurred on Friday night at the Bali View Housing, Cirendeu, East Ciputat, Tangsel.

Rangga revealed, before the incident, he advertised his motorbike in an online buying and selling service since August 6, 2020.

The perpetrator then contacted him last Friday afternoon and claimed he was interested in the advertised vehicle.

At around 21.00 WIB on Friday, the perpetrator came to the victim’s house and saw and tried out the Harley Davidson motorcycle.

“After that he brought the motorbike. After the perpetrator used the motorbike, we were surprised why there was no sound,” he said.

He then took the initiative to find the perpetrator and his motorbike by going around his home complex with his father and the online taxi driver the perpetrator had hired.

However, the perpetrator was not around his house and the security officer said that there was a large motorbike that had just left the residential area.

“I checked with the security post, and it turned out that the perpetrator had just passed. He thought it was me who was carrying a motorbike,” he said.

Rangga said he allowed the perpetrator to test the vehicle because he came by car and the car was still at his house with the driver still waiting when the thief did a test drive.

After the perpetrator fled, it was discovered that the driver was an online taxi driver who was asked by the perpetrator to wait at that location.

The taxi driver had not yet paid his rent by the thief.

“I gave permission because I thought that the driver … was a relative or personal driver of the perpetrator. Because when the driver arrived he parked and came down and checked my motorbike,” he said.

After that, the victim immediately reported to the South Tangerang Police that night.
