BATAM: Police arrested five people who were allegedly involved in piracy attempt on the Singapore-flagged ship Century II.

Riau Police's marine unit director Mohammad Yasin Kossasih said Monday that the suspects used a wooden boat in attempt to ambush the vessel and its tugboat, the Malaysian-flagged Marcopolo, en route from Singapore to Sei Guntung, Riau.

"The police officers at a surveillance post were suspicious and approached the vessel with a patrol boat. Officers found four suspects about to commit criminal acts. It's most likely they were attempting to pirate the vessel," Yassin said.

The police said that they had during the arrest. The suspects confessed only to attempting to steal the rope, which they could have resold for Rp 125,000 (US$13.87), Yassin said.

"It would have been too risky to only steal the rope. We are still developing the case," he said. - JP
