Authorities arrested 17 people in connection with the robbery of Kim Kardashian West in October during Paris Fashion Week, when thieves broke into her residence, tied her up at gunpoint, locked her in a bathroom and stole $10 million worth of jewelry.

According to the Associated Press, the arrests started around 6 a.m. in the French city. No names have been released as of yet, but People.com believes that two of them are being questioned by a magistrate today.

Kardashian West has been mostly quiet after the incident, staying off social media for the rest of 2016. But in a Keeping Up with the Kardashians preview released last week, KKW was seen weeping as she talked with her sisters, describing her horror, "Are they gonna shoot me in the back? There's no way out ... It makes me so upset to think about it."
