On a Monday morning at 3 A.M. on the 3rd of October, the Paris Criminal Police received a call from 36 Quai des orfèvres which is the headquarters of the Paris Criminal police about an armed robbery. While this is not unusual, the victim Kim Kardashian was. The best part about this the call is that the chief of police had no idea who she was. After checking with a couple of officers who had no idea either, he sought Google’s help.
Although he could not reveal many details as the investigation is still in progress, the crime did happen, and it was not a hoax. Her did agree that it was one of the most unusual cases he had ever handled. The heist was wilder and much worse than any other reality show on TV. As an after math it consumed long hours of the police professionals, control the paparazzi during the fashion week, etc.
For the thieves, the times are getting to be very difficult. Banks are becoming safer, and the cash is being transferred by wire. The trucks that carry loads of cash to the ATMs are now being amped up with extra protection, and many of the past offenders have been put behind bars. There is no way robbers can operate at the bank. So, they need to attack people at home or on the street.
France has very strict laws against holding personal wealth, jewelry and other valuables. Therefore, people hold on to large amounts of cash at homes which make it an easy target for the thieves.
Unfortunately, Kim was subject to the dark side of the city during her stay at Paris. Kim always is known to attract attention from the paparazzi; they kept close watch of her schedule via Social Media. She stayed at a private home that was converted into a hotel which did not have CCTV monitoring and sparse security. Since celebrities are known to stay there, most robbers know that it is a potential target location.
