So far, 17 suspects were arrested in relation to the robbery which occurred on October 3, 2016.
According to French publication, Le Monde Newspaper, the driver was the last person to drive the ‘Selfish’ Author before the harrowing incident, and the police is trying to find out whether the driver was an informant for the thieves.
Le Monde also reports that one of the five men who robbed Kim was identified with the help of DNA found on a piece of duct tape used to tie Kardashian. They added that all five men are among the arrested suspects as well as two women, and a 72-year-old man reportedly identified as “Pierre B”. All are believed to have been involved in organizing the crime.
Two others who are currently in police custody were reportedly seen in Antwerp, Belgium, where the police suspect that the stolen jewelry was taken.
Us Weekly reports that Kardashian’s French lawyer, Jean Veil, told France 2 TV (via Reuters) that his client is:
“Very happy, very satisfied and to a certain extent reassured by the efficiency of the French police.”
Here’s hoping all the culprits are brought to justice.
