Lelipi ngalih gegitik.
[example 1]
A snake that looks for a hammer. [proverb] This is said of a thief that is finally caught. Someone who does a bad thing, for example steals, often blames the bad deed on someone else. Hence he is a snake. But, in so doing, since he himself is involved, he is, in effect, sealing his own fate, because he will eventually be caught in the deception.
