Tuesday’s robbery at the Chaumet jewelry store on 1st Avenue Franois in Paris, in the Golden Triangle near the Champs-Elysées, the first carried out with the help of the Trotinette, the ubiquitous electric scooter in Paris. The sign of the era. If Arsenio Lupine has moved before Netflix aboard Avions Voisin luxury cars, in recent years the means of the most daring shots in central Paris have been less elegant: The Borsalino-hatted man who stole jewelry in 2009 for 6,8 million arrived from Chopard and left on foot . The two criminals, wearing balaclavas and guns, were even more nervous and stole €600,000 worth of watches from Collette in 2014 and escaped on a motorbike; They exaggerated the gang thieves who the following year stole two million jewels from Castigli, on Rue de Castiglione, at 4:50 a.m., using an off-road vehicle to break through windows and escape in a second SUV.
Today, great mobility, such as bikes, scooters, and various skateboards in Paris, is common enough to be used for burglaries. The fast and popular electric scooter: perfect for not getting noticed. Surveillance cameras recorded a man of about 50 years old, dressed in a gray suit, arriving in front of the shop on a scooter manned by the Tier operator, one of three (the others being Lime and Dott) authorized in the capital. Chaumet quietly entered, pointed the pistol at the shop assistants, handed over jewelry for almost three million euros, and drove away on the same scooter: 20 kilometers per hour, a few but more than enough to overcome traffic jams.
The police arrested the scooter cutter yesterday, with partner and loot, in a service area near Metz, on a bus bound for Serbia. His unromantic shot can remain a coveted outcome by many, and the commitment to plate is also for the bread.
