thieves used the Paris cat­a­combs to break through to a lux­ury cellar

Thieves knocked through a wall of the Paris cat­a­combs to break into a lux­ury apart­ment and steal wines with an es­ti­mated value of € 250,000.

About 300 bot­tles of fine wine were re­port­edly taken from the cellar of an apart­ment in the 6th ar­rondisse­ment of Paris, near Le Jardin du Lux­em­bourg.

Only a small part of the cat­a­combs is open to the pub­lic. Police spec­u­lated that an op­er­a­tion in the subter­ranean net­work, which stretches for sev­eral miles and houses the re­mains of six mil­lion dead, would re­quire sig­nif­i­cant plan­ning.
