Paris Police: 16 Arrested Over Kim Kardashian Jewelry Heist

Posted on Jan 9 2017 - 1:38pm by Celeb

Earlier this month, the starlet broke her silence on the robbery in a teaser for the family’s reality show, telling two of her sisters her thoughts at the time: “They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.”

Police said the thieves stole a jewelry box containing valuables worth 6 million euros ($6.7 million) as well as a ring worth 4 million euros ($4.5 million).

Paris police and prosecutor’s office previously said five people directly took part in the robbery, including two who forced their way into the apartment.

Police analyzed footage from surveillance cameras to try to identify the assailants, who wore fake police emblems on their jackets.

At the time, a spokeswoman for Kardashian West said she was badly shaken but physically unharmed. The robbery raised new concerns about security in the French capital after a string of deadly extremist attacks.

Kardashian West has the habit of showing her jewels and whereabouts in her social media, including days before the robbery when she posted pictures of herself attending fashion week shows.

Paris has been a special place for Kardashian West and her husband, who spent the weekend there before marrying in Florence in May 2014.
