As quoted in the market news:

A Frenchman who is believed to have been one of the actual robbers was detained in France, while six people were detained in Switzerland and 24 in Belgium.

Suspects in France and Switzerland were detained on Tuesday, and the following day Belgian police carried out a massive early-morning operation, with 250 police involved in 40 house searches.

“In Switzerland, we have found diamonds that we can already say are coming from the heist, and in Belgium large amounts of money have been found. And the investigation is still ongoing,” said Jean-Marc Meilleur, a spokesman for the Brussels prosecutor’s office.
