A new suspect is facing potential charges in the investigation into a 2016 jewellery heist in Paris targeting Kim Kardashian West.

A judicial official said the suspect was detained on Tuesday, and is meeting on Friday with an investigative judge who is expected to file preliminary charges.

The official, who was not authorised to be publicly named discussing an ongoing investigation, did not identify the suspect or provide other details.

Ten people have been charged in the case. The alleged mastermind wrote the reality TV star an apology letter from his prison cell.

Robbers allegedly forced their way into the apartment where Kardashian West was staying during Paris Fashion Week, tied her up and stole more than $10 million (Dh37m) worth of jewellery. She says the experience made her less materialistic.
