DILI: Last week new information emerged from media sources in Indonesia that hundreds of stolen motorbikes and cars stored in East Java were about to be sold to Timor-Leste.

According to a Suara.com interview with the Director of General Criminal Investigation (Dirreskrimum) Polda Metro Jaya Kombes Wira Satya Triputra, two suspects had admitted to sending stolen cars and motorbikes to Timor-Leste every one to two months.

The arrested men are accused of being part of a larger stolen vehicle operation in Indonesia, the police said, adding they have confiscated 214 motorbikes and 46 cars as part of the investigation so far.

A stolen motorbike can sell for around IDR 15 million (US$965) to $20million (US$1286), said Wira.

Under Indonesian law, penalties for stealing and selling motor vehicles include up to seven years in prison.
