The 27-year old limo driver is said to be the one who was chauffeuring Mrs. West before the robbery. Police reports show that the driver would have known the reality star’s movements.

The oldest suspect who is 72, is alleged to be the ring leader of the gang. They are questioning the suspects hoping to recover the stolen jewelry and put the whole saga to bed.

According to the French Police, the robbers left the clamp that was used to bind the reality star. This material was then used as a as a source of DNA in investigations. Then also, during the getaway, one thief had a little accident carrying the jewels, picked them up hastily and forgot a pendant that was turned in to the hands of the police hours later.

With that pendant,the police obtained information that turned the trail in the direction of a person of interest.

The robbery took place in October 2016 where the reality star had flown to the country to attend the Paris Fashion week. The gun men reportedly posed as members of law enforcement and accessed the star’s room in the Hotel de Pourtales – also known as the ‘No Address Hotel’.
