Update
New evidence regarding Kim Kardashian's Paris robbery suggests that the whole ordeal was in fact an "inside job."

Of the 17 people arrested this morning (see below) Kim Kardashian's chauffeur was reportedly amongst those. The arrests also included a 72-year-old gangster and three women, who's DNA was taken from one of the diamonds dropped during the raid.

This story is developing.

Original article
Three months after Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris and French police have reportedly arrested 17 people in relation to the crime.

According to the New York Times, the detained suspects are aged between 40 and 72 years old, with the Mail Online describing “most” as having “long criminal records”.

A police spokesperson told the Times that "the oldest of those arrested was 72 and that several of the others were in their 40s, 50s and 60s, which suggested that they were part of an 'experienced' group."

While the individuals are yet to be identified, it is believed the police made the connection using a DNA sample taken from the crime scene, which matched a “well known robber”. The link then prompted a police “surveillance operation” which led to investigators to other suspected assailants.

No word yet on whether Kim will head to Paris to assist with the investigation, but it is reported she will be asked to identify suspects from photos and surveillance footage.
