A Gold Coast teenager has reportedly spent a second night at a police station in Bali accused of stealing two watches from a duty free shop at the airport.

The 17-year-old from Mermaid Waters was arrested around 2pm on Saturday before he could board a flight back to Queensland.

He was being held under Indonesia’s child protection laws, which meant he was spared from spending time in a police jail cell.

According to News Corp the teen's lawyer is hoping to work things out directly with the store through mediation to avoid charges.
