French authorities have released Kim Kardashian West’s chauffeur and two others in the investigation into October’s $10 million armed jewel heist, which saw the reality star bound and gagged inside a rented luxury apartment in Paris.

According to the Paris prosecutor’s office, fourteen other suspects remained in custody as of Wednesday including the chauffeur’s brother after authorities carried out coordinated raids earlier this week

Investigators are looking into the possibility that the robbery was an inside job.

Law enforcement officials said the brothers, identified as 40-year-old Michael Madar, 40, and 27-year-old Gary Madar, were among those detained, according to the Associated Press.

Both men worked for the same car service company used by Kardashian.

Authorities didn’t indicate which brother had driven Kardashian West on the night of the robbery.

Additionally, officials said an investigating judge may travel to the United States to speak with Kardashian West.
