Police officers in Paris have seized a surveillance video showing the faces of the armed gang that robbed Kim Kardashian. With a seemingly well-thought out plan in place for the robbery heist, where did the robbers go wrong? It turns out, they did not realize there had been a camera across the street facing a mirror which revealed the reflection of men’s faces as the gang rode away with $10 million of Kim’s jewelry.
Perhaps the gang of thieves should have put masks over their faces after running from Kim Kardashian’s luxury apartment. The men who robbed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star were caught on a single CCTV camera which just so happened to reveal their faces in the reflection of the mirror it was facing.
The Sun is reporting that catching the thieves on camera during a getaway is a “million-to-one” scenario.
The gang succeeded in a getaway by escaping from Kim Kardashian’s luxury Parisian apartment, quickly rounding the corner throw double doors in the corridor, and hopping onto their push bikes that they had stowed away in a parking garage.
Unfortunately for the thieves, their faces were fully exposed during the getaway and while they were walking towards the parking garage, a camera above a shopping center in Marche De La Madeleine captured the robbers dressed as police officers fleeing the scene.
According to reports, Paris police has ordered the owner of Bel Ange (“Beautiful Angel”) nail salon, where the camera was located, to not speak to the press about the video footage at this time.
The owner’s friend, American Nina Richter, commented to the media that no one had been allowed to even view the footage.
“Police seized the footage on Tuesday morning, they told the owner not to speak to the media about it.
“She wasn’t even allowed to view it herself but they told her what was on it. They said it showed their faces.
“The upstairs camera caught the gang in a mirror which looks out onto the street.”
It was merely just by chance that the camera inside of the nail salon was facing a large mirror outside that perfectly reflected the gang’s faces.
“It shot them perfectly as they made their way inside this shopping area and then a second camera got them as they made their way through an unlocked corridor to the car park.
“Police told the owner it has given them the best lead yet.
“It’s the clearest possible footage of them and shows just exactly how they made their escape.
“It’s just happened to be facing the mirror so it just happened to be perfectly placed.
“It’s a million-to-one chance.”
Police officers are believed to have seized cigarette butts from the parking garage to check for DNA.
The security guard working in the parking garage told detectives that he had fallen asleep and had not seen or heard anything.
There is no footage of the thieves escaping the car park and fleeing on their bikes into Paris.
Detectives have spent the morning gathering all security footage from the stores inside of Marche De La Madeleine in case there were any more images of the robbers.
Just hours before the robbery heist, Kim Kardashian had been attending the Givenchy runway show for Paris Fashion Week. Kardashian arrived at the show with her sister Kourtney Kardashian. The two were there to support their supermodel sister, Kendall Jenner.
Police officers have yet to release images of the armed robbery gang.
Many have been quick to blame Kardashian herself for the robbery, mainly due to her over-sharing on social media.
Last month, the reality star bragged about her new digs in Paris. This month, a group of men broke in, tied her up, and stole her million dollar engagement ring.
It was not too difficult to figure out where Kardashian had been staying in Paris.
Does this “million-to-one” scenario make Kim Kardashian’s robbery even more questionable? What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below.
