Chauffeur Who Drove Kim Kardashian's Family Around Paris, Among 17 People Arrested Over £8.5M Robbery
The heist, worth around £8.5 million, was France's biggest jewellery theft involving a private citizen in more than two decades.
The 27-year-old driver worked for an upmarket firm that was used by the Kardashian family whenever they were in Paris.
The accused men, aged mostly in their 50s, 60s and 70s, are suspected of stealing jewels and valuables worth £8.5million from Ms Kardashian during Paris fashion week.
The age of the suspects has echoes of the 2015 Hatton Garden safe deposit robbery in London – carried out by a team of veteran British criminals.
A police source said: 'The oldest suspect is 72, while others are in their 50s and 60s. All are well known to the Police.' Another later arrest involved a 23-year-old.
