16 arrested over Kim Kardashian Paris robbery

"The oldest suspect is 72, while others are in their 50s and 60s".

Last October, the 36-year-old reality star was tied up, gagged, and held at gunpoint while armed robbers took off with almost $10 million worth of her jewelry. Reports state that, after a three month investigation, the suspected culprits were detained following some early morning raids all over France.

DNA evidence left at the crime scene, a private residence where Kim had been staying for Paris Fashion Week, as well as surveillance footage led authorities to discover certain suspects as well as a wider criminal network allegedly responsible for the $9 million jewelry robbery.

Kardashian addressed the incident for the first time publically during a promotional ad for her reality show released this weekend.

"These arrests are a nice surprise because we might be able to find the jewels", Jean Veil, Kardashian's lawyer in Paris, told L'Express, adding that the arrests were "a great satisfaction" to his client.
