Prior to that, according to the concierge, they demanded to know where the wife of the rapper, Kayne West was. The thieves may not have known Kardashian-West by her name, but apparently knew of her husband, the jewelry she had in her possession, and that she was alone.

Disguised as police officers, the men arrived and left the scene on bicycles but not before taking jewelry worth millions of dollars. Reportedly, two of the men accompanied the concierge to the suite where Kardashian-West was tied up.

The robbers did not have to search far as jewelry was said to be out in the open on a table. Once the crooks left, Kardashian-West managed to break free and called Pascal Duvier, her bodyguard. Duvier was out with the 35-year-old star’s sisters, Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian. BFM TV also states that the robbery was professional and no traces of DNA were left behind. In fact, there is suspicion the act may have involved the notorious Pink Panther gang.

Too much information

A reformed criminal told the Daily Beast that he believes this particular heist was successful because the star is such an easy target due to her exposing so much on social media. Everyone knew she had a diamond ring gifted to her by husband, Kanye, worth $4-5 million. It’s advertising. He went on to say that he was glad she had not been physically hurt during this ordeal.
