French police find stolen jewelry worth 18 million euros in sewer

43597.jpegFrench police have found jewellery worth €18 million hidden in a sewer in Paris, three years after one of the most audacious robberies in French history.

The jewels were stolen in 2008 in what the New York Times called a "brazen and meticulously planned robbery" from a store just off the Champs Elysee, involving four or five thieves - two of them dressed as women - who walked off with €80 million worth of jewels as Christmas shoppers milled around, according to thejournal.ie.

Police mounted a thorough investigation with 25 people brought in for question and 9 of those arrested. Yet until yesterday only $1.1 million worth of jewelry had been uncovered.

After a tip off police raided the home of one of the suspects, and began digging up his sewer. There, in amongst the flow was a sparkling plastic bag holding 19 rings and 3 sets of earrings worth $25 million.

While the police discovery may have been fashionably late many would be relieved that the jewelry may now be resting on the fingers of rich as they travel the world, not floating the sewers of Paris, Culture Clash Daily reports.
