In Paris, a criminal stole jewelry worth millions in a robbery on a jewelry store.
The man drove on a scooter to the Chaumet store near the Champs-Elysées on Tuesday, investigators said.
He was armed with a handgun.
The jewelry and jewels worth two to three million euros were therefore handed over to him without resistance, after which the robber drove away on the scooter.
The police started the investigation.
A branch of the jeweler Chaumet on the Place Vendôme in Paris was robbed in 2009.
At that time, the perpetrators looted jewels worth 1.9 million euros.
