DENPASAR, Bali (BPN) – Bali Regional Police arrested an Interpol fugitive from the United States accused of investment fraud. The suspect, Marcus Beam, also had been producing and selling porn videos to support his living expense on the island, police said on Friday.

Bali Police Chief Inspector General Petrus Reinhard Golose explained that the Bali Regional Police previously received information from the Washington DC Police regarding requests for help in searching for a red notice subject named Beam Marcus, 50, accused of investment fraud worth US$500,000.

Based on the information from the U.S. Marshals Service (USMS), the red notice subject lived in Indonesia with a woman named Wright Christine, also American.

“Following up on the information, the CTOC (Counter Transnational and Organized Crime) Task Force with the Bali Police Directorate General of Criminal Investigation conducted an investigation of the subject in Bali and obtained information that he had moved about six times in Ubud and Kerobokan,” Inspector General Golose said on a press conference, Friday.

“From January to July, while settling in Bali, Beam with his female friend uploaded photos and porn videos on websites to get paid as living expenses.”

The arrest then was done to Beam and Cristine on Thursday, July 23, in a villa located in Badung Regency. The police also seized evidence including passport, five phones, a knife, 14 sex toys, and 13 other electronic devices.

“The suspect currently has been secured at the Bali Police Headquarters for further investigation,” Inspector General Golose said.
