The Chaumet jewelry store in Paris, one of the most prestigious and oldest jewelry stores in France, fell victim to an armed robbery on Tuesday, with jewelry worth two to three million euros stolen.
As Le Parisien reported on its website, the robbery took place on Tuesday afternoon at a jewelery shop located on Rue Francois 1er, near the Champs-Elysées in central Paris. The robbery took place during the opening hours of the jewelry store. The disguised and armed perpetrator got to the crime scene and left it on a scooter.
According to BFM television, the man entered a jewelry store and expressed interest in buying jewelry, while showing the increasingly expensive models on the counter. He then pulled out a firearm and, endangering the staff, ran out of the store with a magnifying glass.
Before escaping from the crime scene, the perpetrator warned the staff that a bomb had been set in the store, which he activated if they tried to call the police or escape. At that moment, he also seized the keys to the store and locked the employees in it.
The case began to be dealt with by the Paris Prosecutor’s Office, which has not yet confirmed the reported value of the loot by the media.Read more After thieves watched for a million from the center of Bratislava, the ground collapsed
Chaumet is one of the oldest jewelry stores in France – it was founded in 1780. It currently belongs to the LVMH conglomerate, which has not yet commented on the robbery.
Le Parisien recalled that the Chaumet jewelry store was not the target of an armed robbery for the first time. Jewelry worth € 1.9 million was stolen from its iconic store on Place Vendôme in central Paris in November 2009 during a robbery.
