As Radar readers know, the wife of Yeezy rapper, Kanye West, 39, was robbed in Paris last October for nearly $11 million worth of jewelry. For weeks, there were no suspects. But this week several individuals ranging from age 23 to 73 were picked up in the Paris area.

Three people involved are women, and one 72-year-old man, who has been identified in French reports as "Pierre B," is believed to be involved in organizing the heist. According to BFM TV, DNA was found at the scene linking at least one possible suspect to the crime.

Two of the people in police custody were seen in Antwerp, Belgium, where police think the stolen gems were taken.
