€100,000: Damage from robbery of Prokhorov's villa in Courchevel
The burglars' loot mainly comprised of expensive fur coats.
The amount of damage due to the robbery of the Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov's villa in Courchevel, which took place a week ago, became known.
According to AFP, the criminals misappropriated different property worth about €100 thousand from Prokhorov's chalet in a well guarded private Courchevel quarter of Hameaux de Bellecôte.
It mainly comprised of expensive fur products. However, as the French law enforcement bodies reported to the agency, burglars managed to find 8 thousand euros in cash in the house. The Prosecutor's Office of Albertville has opened a criminal case into the burglary.
As the French media report, chalet Génépy on Vizelle Street in Courchevel is personally owned by Mikhail Prokhorov, who regularly rests there.
In January 2007, as part of a criminal investigation into an international prostitution network, police officers detained 26 in Courchevel, including the founder of Onexim group and 16 of his female companions. However, later all of them were released without charges.
