BRB officers recovered almost Euro 300,000 in cash from the homes of the various suspects following their dawn raids on Monday morning, Le Parisien reported.

The operation included the search for a 72-year-old man, known as Pierre, at his home in Grasse, in the mountains overlooking the French riveria.

Pierre, who ran a private beach club in Saint Tropez, was jailed in the early 2000’s for drug trafficking.

Pierre, 72, and his 70-year-old long term partner Christiane, are currently being held in custody in Paris.

Two of the other 17 people arrested in dawn raids on Monday – an unnamed man and woman – have also been released without charge, according to Le Figaro newspaper.

Details of those being held have emerged as the limo company owner arrested by French police investigating the robbery has been released – but his brother remains in police custody.

Michael Madar and his brother Gary were arrested in a series of raids on Monday morning.
