A slew of suspects were detained by police on Monday morning in connection to Kim Kardashian's headline-making armed robbery in Paris.
A spokeswoman for the Paris Prosecutor confirms to CBS News that 17 people are now in police custody -- including three women -- after being tied to the October incident that lost Kardashian millions in jewels and cash. According to the spokeswoman, several of the 17 in custody are known to police and have links with major crime.
CBS News also confirmed that police found DNA traces at the scene of the robbery, which led to Monday's raids. However, it is very unlikely that police will identify the suspects publicly, as they rarely do. The suspects can be held for 96 hours on suspicion of armed robbery, and are very unlikely to appear in court before trial.
According to local Paris reports, the 17 who were picked up by police in pre-dawn raids in and around Paris and in the south of France range in age from 23 to 72, with the majority being in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. Police reportedly conducted searches at their homes and at a jeweler's in Paris, and seized weapons and cash.
French daily newspaper Le Monde reports that one of the people in custody is a chauffeur with the luxury car company that the Kardashians were using at the time, and that he was the person who drove Kardashian home on the night of her robbery.
The reality star and mother of two, who recently returned to social media after an extended hiatus, has yet to publicly comment on the arrests.
In a preview for the upcoming season, Kim talked with her sisters, Kourtney and Khloe, about the traumatic ordeal, saying, “They’re going to shoot me in the back… It makes me so upset to think about it.”
