“THE GRANDDAD GANGSTERS”. This article in the New York Post by Maureen Callahan is a followup to the arrests that were made in the Kim Kardashian theft. (I posted on the arrests here.) The article says that “To the European press, they are ‘The Pappy Gangsters’ or ‘The Granddad Gangsters.’” The press is taken with their colorful pasts. One character is known as “The Eel” for his ability to escape and another is known as “Blue Eyes”. “Nez Rapé,” or “Broken Nose,” is known for dressing up as a police officer and, along with several accomplices, pulling over drivers of luxury cars and robbing them of their jewelry at gunpoint.
The Kardashian burglary was reportedly meant to be the crew’s last big operation before retirement.
