AXL ROSE Robbed of $200,000 Necklaces While in Paris; Young Model Arrested
A Parisian police spokesman said Wednesday that the lead singer of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted band was fuming after the theft during a private gathering after the band’s show at Bercy stadium the previous night.
Judicial police have opened an investigation but the spokesman said it didn’t appear Rose was wearing the necklaces at the time. The spokesman spoke on condition of anonymity because of office policy.
According to Page Six of the New York Post, French police arrested a woman today (June 6th) in connection with the theft. Police sources said the woman, a young model, was placed under formal arrest after she returned the items to a police station in central Paris.
She said she had attended a private concert with around 100 people after a public performance by the group at Bercy stadium and was not sure how she had come to leave with the jewelry, the sources said.
The group’s website says they are scheduled to play in Moenchengladbach, Germany, on Friday before returning to France as part of a tour of Europe and Israel that runs through July 22nd.
