More details of Kim Kardashian West's terrifying Paris robbery have emerged, focused on the burglars who entered the hotel and how they escaped.
A Paris police official has told Us Weekly that the robbers set up a decoy in order to trick the police after fleeing the 35-year-old reality star's hotel room.
The decoy included one of the five men falling off a bicycle while another pretended to accidentally drop a piece of jewellery, the source explained.
"They wanted us to believe that they were amateurs, but all the real clues point to them being extremely sophisticated professionals," the police official said.
"There is no way a gang like this would drop stuff and fall off bicycles — all that was done for any cameras that might be in the area," the official continued.
"It is far more likely that they played around on bikes for a few minutes after stealing the jewels, and when they still had their masks on, before they all got into a van and disappeared."
The piece of jewellery that one of the burglars dropped was later found by local police. "That's why it was of low value compared to the other pieces in the haul," the source explained.
It was reported that Kardashian West has been blaming herself for the robbery,where she was tied up, gagged and held at gunpoint, after showcasing her diamond ring on social media.
