A guest at a luxury Parisean hotel contacted police after fearing a staff stole a diamon ring worth around £673,000 – only for it to turn up in a vacuum cleaner.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien, a Malaysian guest from The Ritz reported an incident to police officers on Friday. The guest alleged their ring went missing from their room, reports Sky.
The Ritz reportedly told the publication it would not release details about the ring’s owner. However, it is understood the luxury object was discovered on Sunday.
In a statement the hotel said: “Thanks to meticulous searches by security agents at the Ritz Paris, the ring was found this morning in a vacuum cleaner bag.
“Our client is happy at the news.”
Le Parisien said the guest travelled to London on Friday but will return to France to collect the ring. It has offered three nights for free as an apology.
