The disappearance of a ring at the Ritz, a famous hotel in Paris's 1st arrondissement, caused quite a stir.
A Malaysian tourist had filed a complaint for the theft of a diamond ring valued at 750,000 euros($800.000). The ring, lost on a Friday, was later found in a vacuum cleaner bag at the hotel, as reported by Le Parisien.
The tourist, staying at the luxury hotel, had explained that she left her ring, set with a 6.51-carat diamond, on a table in her room when she left the hotel on Friday morning.
However, upon her return around 11:30 am, the exceptionally valuable jewel was nowhere to be found.
Suspecting an employee of the Ritz, a hotel renowned for its extremely meticulous staff recruitment, the client filed a complaint at the police station. The police immediately opened an investigation for "theft in a dwelling," assigned to the Brigade for the Repression of Banditry.
The Ritz Paris's security agents, through their meticulous investigative work, found the ring on Sunday morning.
The hotel expressed its satisfaction with the discovery and extended thanks to its "collaborators," who had been under suspicion, for working "each day with integrity and professionalism."
