The 'jewelry of the stars' in the center of Paris is robbed

The 'jewelry of the stars' in the center of Paris is robbed

French police said they are looking for armed robbers who targeted a jeweler in the most luxurious areas of Paris.

Paris police said the armed robbers arrived and left on motorbikes, firing once inside the jeweler but causing no injuries.

A video by local network BFM-TV showed men dressed in black leaving the location on motorcycles.

The Paris prosecutor's office said it was investigating the robbery at the appointment-only store on Avenue Montaigne, Harry Winston, but could not confirm the stolen jewelry or its value.

This is not the first time the luxury jeweler has been robbed. Eight people were jailed in 2015 in connection with a spectacular 2008 heist when three armed men stole $90 million worth of jewelry here, according to media reports.
