Kim Kardashian’s robbery suspects arrive at police station as it emerges 3 women were among
Suspects in the Kim Kardashian robbery ordeal have arrived at a Paris police station as it emerged three women were among those arrested in dawn raids.
Officers made multiple arrests – including a 72-year-old man – in early morning raids on Monday after DNA evidence from tape used to gag the reality star led to the identification of one suspect.
Initial reports said up to 16 men – described as career criminals – had been arrested but updated information reveals three of those taken into custody were women. Two of the arrested are also said to be diamond dealers.
The suspects were identified after DNA evidence was left on a piece of tape used to gag Kim during the ordeal; police say it belonged to a man known to officers for past robbery and criminal offences.
Police then tapped phones and began surveillance of the identified suspect, which led to the discovery of further people believed to be involved in the crime.
They even managed to track a meeting held after the robbery between a member of the gang and a potential buyer of the reality star’s expensive jewels.
