DNA traces found on the scene of the robbery of Kim Kardashian-West in Paris, France, has led to the arrest of sixteen people, BBC reports.

The American reality TV star was robbed at gunpoint by at least two men dressed as police officers in October last year.

Kim was tied up at gunpoint and locked in the bathroom of her luxury apartment.

The armed assailants made away with an estimated N3.5b in jewelry belonging to the ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star.

Following three months of investigations, the men were detained in early morning raids in the Paris region, Normandy, and the French Riviera.

“One of the DNA samples matched an individual known to police for robbery criminal offenses,” French police was quoted to have said.

Kardashian-West was in France for the Paris Fashion Week when the incident took place.
