Footballer Bilica, Sibel O. and "Vet" Aydoğan K.

The villa of Elazığspor's Brazilian football player Fabio Bilica
in Büyükçekmece, Istanbul, was the scene of an unusual robbery
incident. Allegedly, as Bilica was leaving for Elazığ he told the
security guard, with whom he left the house keys, that a veterinarian
would be coming to the house.

Suspect Aydoğan K. somehow learned about this key arrangement
and, passing himself off as a veterinarian, got the keys from the security
guard. Aydoğan K. then summoned his girlfriend Sibel O. to the villa
for four days of partying, after which he loaded 750,000 TL worth of
Bilica's belongings into a minibus and took off.

Based on security camera videos, Aydoğan K. was quickly identified
and arrested. Also taken into custody by Büyükçekmece police was
the taxi driver who took the minibus driver, Aydoğan K. and Sibel O.
to a house in Bağcılar, Istanbul. According to the taxi driver's statement,
Aydoğan K. didn't have any money to pay him for the fare so he gave
the driver what he claimed were Bilica's football cleats instead. The
taxi driver asked police to return the cleats to Bilica.

Elazığ - smack in the middle of nowhere.
