According to the publication, the arrests took place in several different locations in Paris and surrounding cities in the early hours of Monday morning. It is believed that questioning is underway, and the suspects can be held for up to 96 hours before they must either be charged or released.

People magazine reports that "exploitable DNA" was found on a piece of jewelry, a diamond-encrusted Jacob & Co.

According to Le Monde, police had been monitoring these two suspects closely for several weeks prior to the arrests.

While the Paris prosecutor's office hasn't yet commented on the arrests, according to People, they have learned that some of the suspects have already been brought before two magistrates for questioning while the investigation continues.
