How horrible! Kim Kardashian, 35, is understandably shaken up after what she’s calling ‘the worst moment of my life.’ While she is — most importantly — safe, her belongings are not. Nearly $11 million worth of jewelry was taken from her hotel room, while she was locked and tied up in the bathroom. It’s unclear which of Kim’s jewelry was taken at this time.

Two masked men, dressed as police officers not only held Kim Kardashian at gunpoint and at her hotel in Paris, they also took a great deal of expensive jewelry, including a jewelry box worth $6.7 million and a ring worth $4.5 million, police said, according to Daily Mail. It has not yet been confirmed if the ring taken was in fact, one of the two that she has received from Kanye West. While Kim’s original Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring was worth around $1.6 million, the second diamond that Kanye gave his wife — a 20-carat emerald-cut ring — was reportedly worth around $4 million.

When leaving Paris the following morning, she was spotted on a private plane, not wearing a ring. In her last snapchat taken before the robbery, she was wearing it. The men who robbed her were part of a “highly organized” group, police confirmed, according to Us. They entered the apartment by reportedly tying up and gagging the concierge at the front desk and putting him inside a stairwell cupboard. TMZ is reporting there were five men total who entered the building, and they tied up a terrified Kim and put her in the bathroom of her room.

Of course, more details are still coming out of this story. Kanye was performing a concert in Queens at the time the news broke; he stopped the show in the middle of performing “Heartless,” and walked off stage. The venue later tweeted to inform fans he had a “family emergency.”

Our thoughts are with Kim at this time.

Police: Robbery of jewelry store at local mall well-planned

HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Hazelwood Police Department said they believe a Monday night robbery of a jewelry store at the St. Louis Outlet Mall was well-planned.

Surveillance video captured a trio of robbers running though the mall carrying backpacks and duffel bags. Two of the three men were wearing masks when they walked into Prime Jewelers around 8:30 p.m. and used crowbars to smash jewelry cases, police said.

An employee tried to stop the robbery, but one of the robbers sprayed the employee with mace. Two others, including a security guard whose two-way radio was stolen so he could not call for help, were also maced by the suspect, according to police.

According to investigators, one of the suspects broke the glass of the display cases while the other two followed behind grabbing the jewelry. Police say the whole incident lasted less than 90 seconds. Following the robbery, the suspects left in a black pick-up truck.

“They knew they had to go in the closest entrance and exit quickly, they had a vehicle outside ready to pick them up. They definitely knew what they were doing,” said Detective William Russ of the Hazelwood Police Department.

The dollar value of what was taken has not been determined, but the store owner told News 4 the suspects smashed a lot of cases and got away with a lot.
