A ring worth 800,000 US dollars was found missing from one of the rooms of the famous Ritz Paris hotel inside a vacuum cleaner bag on the morning of Sunday the 11th of this month. The owner of the precious jewel, a Malaysian businesswoman, reported the disappearance of the ring last Friday to the Paris Center Commission. After a comprehensive search conducted by security personnel at the location, the mystery of the whereabouts of the luxury item was solved, ruling out the initial possibility of theft.
According to Le Parisien newspaper, the Ritz Paris client, whose identity has not been revealed and who came to Paris for tourist purposes, was initially skeptical of the hotel staff. However, investigations by police and hotel security teams concluded that the diamond ring was not stolen but had been accidentally vacuumed.
The businesswoman’s lawyers, Robin Bensard and Rebecca Childs, expressed their gratitude to everyone who participated in the proceedings. According to the BBC, the businesswoman had already left for London on Saturday, one day before she was discovered.
The Ritz Paris has extended an offer of three free nights to the Malaysian tourist as compensation for the incident, although the customer does not plan to accept the commercial gesture. In the past, the hotel has been involved in other criminal incidents, including a 2018 armed robbery of one of its jewelry stores.
On that occasion, five men armed with axes smashed the windows of the luxury store and stole jewelry, but local authorities were able to arrest three men, while others managed to escape.
