The "career criminals", including a 72-year-old man, were arrested after a series of "coordinated" dawn raids which took place this morning, reports the Mirror.

According to various worldwide news reports, earlier today, up to 16 people were arrested in France in connection to her Paris robbery.

French police said that traces of DNA left at the scene led to the arrests.

Some of the suspects were allegedly known to authorities, and one of the individuals arrested is 60-years-old.

Police swooped in the Paris region and the south of France following forensic work at the luxury residence in the capital where Kardashian was tied up and robbed of jewellery worth around nine million euros ($9.5 million) in October, one source told AFP.

Paris police and the prosecutor's office previously said five people directly took part in the robbery, including two who forced their way into the apartment.

According to reports, officials were able to track down the suspects with the help of DNA evidence found in Kardashian's Paris apartment.

The suspects can be held for up to 96 hours before being charged. They took the key to where Kardashian West was staying and ran around the building trying to find the correct apartment.

Police said around £9million worth of jewellery was swiped during the robbery.

Kardashian's spokesperson said at the time that the reality star, who is married to the rapper Kanye West, was "badly shaken but physically unharmed". The reality star is often flanked by cameras, her family, or her bodyguard; but sources said that her bodyguard Pascal Duvier had been deposed that evening to protect other members of her family.

The star added: "It makes me so upset to think about it".
