January 14 , 2017
French officials have placed six more suspects under investigation over the Kim Kardashian West robbery in Paris, thus taking the toll of arrests to 10.
All arrested now face preliminary charges ranging from armed robbery to kidnapping and handling stolen goods. As per reports, those brought before an investigating judge on Friday include the alleged "mastermind".
Kardashian was held at gunpoint and tied up by robbers during her stay at an exclusive flat in Paris during October 2016. The TV reality star was attacked in absence of her bodyguard. The gang stole €9m of jewellery, including a diamond ring valued at about €4m.
The suspects brought before a judge on Friday include a 60-year-old believed to be the mastermind of the plot, reported French media. Police have been investigating whether the gang was tipped off that the star's bodyguard was not at the residence at the time of the robbery.
Although there has been no trace yet of Kardashian West's missing jewellery, police did recover an estimated €300,000 worth of items during raids on Monday.
