Kim Kardashian suffered a robbery attack in her hotel room last October, and the nightmarish incident which occurred in far away France inspired series of raids at popular criminal hideouts in Paris.
The French police recorded great success while the court carried out speedy trials. However, details of any recovered cash or jewelry is yet to be made public.
Kimmy reportedly lost over $10 million in the robbery, including a $4m ring from husband Kanye West.
TFI (a French media outlet) has finally shared images from the robbery scene.

During the attack at Paris’ No Address Hotel, Kim was held at gunpoint, gagged with a duct tape and dumped in her bathtub. No rape incident was reported though she was reportedly shaken and traumatized.
A group of five masked men with police badges were reported to have carried out the robbery.
The criminals were sighted leaving on bikes, and one of them was said to have deliberately dropped a piece of jewelry on their way out – a calculated move to fool the police into believing they were amateurs.
The crime scene pictures show Kim’s bedroom as well as a duct tape and plastic ties which were used in suppressing the TV personality.
Kimmy’s limo driver was reported among the suspects. A total of 17 persons were arrested in connection with the 3 October incident.
Out of the seventeen people who were arrested earlier this year, four were found guilty on 12 January. They’re facing charges which include robbery, kidnapping as well as being members of an organized gang.
6 others were charged on 13 January.
Media reports say a group of French investigators visited New York to discuss details of the attack with Kimmy earlier in February. She met with a French judge to testify against his attackers.
Le Monde, a French tabloid, reported a testimony from Aomar Ait Kihedache, who confirmed he was a part of the attack. The suspect however referred to it as a “very simple affair” in his confessional statements.
