Paris police have recovered some jewels stolen from the Ritz Hotel in a dramatic heist, but were still searching Thursday for two thieves and the rest of the missing luxury merchandise.The armed gang burst into the five-star hotel on the French capital's glitzy Place Vendome through a rear staff entrance Wednesday evening and smashed the display windows of jewelry shops on the ground floor.Three men were arrested as they tried to flee by the way they came in with bags of gems and watches worth over 4 million euros ($4.8 million) but came up against locked doors.Cannes has also been targeted many times – in the run-up to its film festival in May 2015 robbers made off with 17.5 million euros' worth of jewels.
