There is hope that over $10m in jewelries including a $4.5m ring taken from reality TV star Kim Kardashian in a Paris hotel on Sunday 2 October 2016 might be recovered.
Reportedly, surveillance recording from the nearby Bel Ange saloon caught the thieves on tape as they escaped the hotel.
Nina Richter, a salon owner and neighbour of Bel Ange revealed some inside scoop about the heist today.
“She (Kim) wasn’t even allowed to view it herself but they told her what was on it. They said it showed their faces.
“The upstairs camera caught the gang in a mirror which looks out onto the street. It shot them perfectly as they made their way inside this shopping area and then a second camera got them as they made their way through an unlocked corridor to the car park. Police told the owner it has given them the best lead yet.
“It’s a million-to-one chance. Obviously the gang knew where they were going, too. They weren’t just fleeing randomly into the night… It’s a surprise that the corridor they used to get away was unlocked but that’s just how it is especially considering the wealthy people who stay at that hotel so close by. The robbers could actually have taken a short route on the street to get to the car park if they went by the street. But it seems they went via the corridor to try to evade being seen.
“Despite them having planned this like clockwork they would never have known that they would have been caught on CCTV like they have.”
