This quartet of high school students had managed to get their hands on a booty of around 90,000 euros.
These four 17-year-old boys, from the 19th arrondissement, were indicted by a Paris juvenile judge for a series of break-ins committed in July in the capital.
This story begins on July 26 when the officials of the brigade for the repression of banditry surprised the curious merry-go-round of this team, boulevard Jules Sandeau in Paris (16th century).
The police first see two very suspicious boys who turn around constantly and scrutinize all the cars that pass before entering a beautiful Haussmann building.
Thirty minutes later, the two suspects, accompanied by two accomplices, come out with a black bag and a rolling suitcase.
A police car passes at this moment, the thieves throw their loot between two cars.
A loot of 80,000 euros in the owner's suitcases
The officials of the judicial police of Paris arrest the four thieves in flagrante delicto. The suitcase bears the name of the owner. Investigators discover that the bottom of the door to his apartment has been smashed. The premises were thoroughly searched and the thieves took possession of jewelry, designer clothes and multimedia material for damages of 80,000 euros. The police discovered that this team had already burgled on July 9 another apartment, rue du Chevaleret (13th) where it had seized 10,000 euros of jewelry.
During the search, a VIGIK pass used to open the building doors was discovered on one of the teenagers. The early burglars were taken into custody at the PJ premises in Paris. "They are all four high school students and live in the same area of Paris," blows a source close to the file. During the hearings, they were not very talkative, recognizing at least their involvement in the two flights.
