Police in France arrested 17 people yesterday in connection with a robbery in which reality TV star Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint in a Paris flat by gangsters who made off on bicycles with jewellery worth ß9-million (R130-million).
In a 6 am Monday morning raid conducted simultaneously by officers from the Brigade for the Repression of Banditry (BRB), from Paris Police Station, which was charged with Investigating the robbery incident, 15 suspects are now in custody. The theory was formed due to the fact that the robbers knew about her whereabouts and when exactly Kim Kardashian was going to be alone. Not long after multiple arrests were made in Kardashian's robbery, French newspaper Le Monde is reporting that one of the suspects may have been the family's limo driver.
A police source told L'Express magazine: "They are divided into three categories: those who are suspected of taking part in the robbery, those thought to have received the jewels and those suspected to have acted as intermediaries, mainly in acting as go-betweens".
Police identified the 72 years old man as Pierre B and believes that he played an organizational role in the crime. The paper also says that Kim, her husband Kanye West, and many members of the Kardashian and Jenner family has used the same limo service in the French city for years.

Details are emerging about the 17 people arrested on Monday over the Paris robbery of U.S. megastar Kim Kardashian, including some fairly elderly known criminals. According to multiple reports, Police tracked down their suspects by tapping phones and by grabbing DNA from the duct tape used to tie up Kim. Wow. Recalling her harrowing ordeal during this season's Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she broke down in tears.
A source familiar with the situation told CNN that Kardashian West pleaded for her life as she was threatened with the gun, and was bound and forced into a bathtub. The only piece of jewellery Kim seemed to be wearing for her sushi outing was a lip ring.
"I welcome this with great satisfaction, these arrests are a nice surprise because, on the one hand, it will perhaps make it possible to find the jewelry".
