According to RTL.fr, a young woman was placed into police custody earlier today (Wednesday, June 6) after she admitted having taken $200,000 worth of jewelry belonging to GUNS N’ ROSES lead singer Axl Rose.
The woman, whose identity was not revealed, told the police that she drank too much and inadvertently put Rose‘s three gold-and-diamond necklaces in her handbag, realizing her mustake only after waking up at lunchtime.
The theft reportedly occurred after GUNS N’ ROSES‘ June 5 concert in Paris, France during a private party at an area guarded by the frontman’s personal security team. The singer, who was not wearing the items at the time, was said to be “furious.”
About 130 invited guests and members of Axl‘s entourage were allowed into the lounge where the jewelry was stolen.
