Jean-Claude Van Damme is so damn famous, all eyes have been glued on him as a substitute of a nearby thief — with terrific timing — who made off with tens of millions in jewels … on a scooter.
So, get this … a grey-haired guy in a suit reportedly held up the substantial-conclusion jewellery retail store Chaumet in Paris earlier this week. Cops say he pulled a knife all through the theft, and when no one particular was injured … the suspect took off with a “monumental haul” in jewels and gemstones. Cops say he nabbed somewhere between $2.4 million and $3.5 mil.
What is actually surprising is the dude obtained away on a green, electrical scooter … which can make ya surprise how he was in a position to pull this off — and that’s wherever JCVD comes in.
Regulation enforcement states there were loads of likely witnesses nearby, but they were all distracted by Van Damme … who was inside of a nearby optometrist’s business office.
The “Bloodsport” and “Avenue Fighter” star had inadvertently drawn the awareness of just about all people on the block … enabling Scooter McJewelThief to make a thoroughly clean getaway.
Nicely, almost clean up. Cops did have surveillance cameras, and we have verified they arrested 2 suspects in connection with the heist. We are informed cops also recovered a significant aspect of the stolen jewellery.
All’s well that finishes perfectly … and Van Damme didn’t even have to carry a finger.
