The thieves took hundreds of thousands of euros of luxury goods from a Saudi princess’ house in Paris, a source close to the case said.
The 47-year-old princess, who has not set foot in the apartment since August, found that when she returned around 600,000 euros (£ 540,000) worth of handbags, watches, jewelry and fur, she went missing .
The princess, whose name was not disclosed, was hospitalized in shock and has not yet spoken to the police.
The source said, the thieves seem to have broken into an apartment located near George V Avenue in the center of the French capital without using force.
Bonuses include around 30 Hermes bags worth between € 10,000 and € 30,000 each, a Cartier watch, jewelry and fur.
Prosecutors have launched a formal investigation that will be handled by the Paris police’s special anti-gang unit.
The Le Parisien newspaper reported that a suspect was originally a man who had been staying at the princess’s apartment since August.
The newspaper added that a spare cluster of keys to her home was lost.
