A Perth man who admitted stealing a pair of designer sunglasses in Bali is now on his way home.
Thomas Harman couldn’t wipe the smile off his face as he headed to the airport to fly back to Perth on Monday.
The 31-year-old was facing up to five years’ in Bali’s notorious Kerobokan Prison – where some of Indonesia’s most dangerous criminals are housed – after taking a pair of $400 Gucci sunglasses from a duty-free store at Denpasar Airport in July.
Mr Harman had argued he simply forgot he was holding the sunglasses when he exited the store, because he was nervous for his upcoming flight.
After three months and 15 days behind bars awaiting sentencing, Mr Harman says he is looking forward to just “chilling” back in Perth.
“(I’m) over the world, over the moon, (laughs),” he said.
“(The prison) was great, great art program, great people.”
Mr Harman was sentenced to three months’ jail for the theft last week.
