Shortly following the news that 17 suspects were arrested on Monday in connection with Kim Kardashian's terrifying Paris robbery, new details have now emerged which suggest the whole thing might have been an inside job.
According to Le Monde, one of the suspects arrested on Monday was an employee for the limo company the Kardashian family normally uses on their trips to Paris. While police have not yet revealed the extent of the 27-year-old's involvement in the case, E! News reports that he was likely the chauffeur who drove Kim back to her hotel on the night of the robbery, and might have provided the robbers with information about the reality star's whereabouts and the fact that she was alone.
Multiple sources report that the majority of the suspects arrested on Monday were "seasoned criminals" with a history of drug trafficking and armed robberies; according to the New York Times, "the suspects appeared to be part of an experienced group with connections to organized crime." People also reports that the five men who allegedly dressed up as police officers to gain access to Kim's hotel have also been arrested, in part thanks to DNA evidence from the adhesive tape wrapped around the reality star's wrists. The source adds that the average age of these men is 55 years old.
Otherwise, little information has been released so far about the three women and 14 men arrested, aside from the fact that the oldest amongst them—currently being identified as "Pierre B."—is 72 years old.
The Kardashian family has not yet commented on the arrests or the news that one of the suspects worked for their preferred Paris limo company.
