French media Actu17 reported that a Malaysian tourist, a businesswoman, was a theft victim at the Ritz, Place Vendome in Paris on Friday.

The thieves allegedly made off with a diamond ring worth 750,000 euros (approx RM3.7 million) from the woman’s hotel room.

She allegedly left her ring on the bedside table. After returning from a shopping trip around 11.30am, she realised the ring was missing.

The local police were alerted and an investigation into the theft is underway.

If we suspect a theft perpetrated by a high-level burglar, the service could be divested and the banditry suppression brigade could take over the case. We are still talking about colossal damage.

A police source told Le Parisien newspaper.
