The Tajoura Combating Crimes Office reports that Aybola was arrested following a complain lodged by her employers that she stole the items from a house she worked as a domestic help in the Abu Salim district, Tripoli, the capital of Libya.

The crime office added that Aybola had planned her robbery before hand and had allegedly added a sleeping pill in the drink she served her mistress, which made her unconscious so that she could get away with the money and gold, which she put in a suitcase and then escaped.
