There were several reports doing the rounds that multiple people have been detained in connection with the armed robbery of Kim Kardashian that took place previous year in October.
The suspects ranged in age from 23 to 72 and included several people known for prior robberies and other crimes, according to a police document seen by The Associated Press.
But tonight Michael's brother Gary, 27, remained in custody along with 13 others.
A judicial source on Wednesday said those released include Kardashian West's driver.
Police are now investigating claims that the robbery was an inside job.
Officials say brothers Michael Madar, 40, and Gary Madar, 27, worked for the same auto service company and were among those arrested Monday.More news: Cuomo proposes free state college tuition for eligible students
The driver was the first to be released by police during the investigation, the spokesperson said.
Kim Kardashian's new family-focused Instagram posts have some fans accusing her and Kanye West of trying to "look poor".
A judge investigating the case may travel to the U.S. to speak to the star, who took a three-month break from social media after the incident.
"They are involved in the diamond trade, and are thought to have handled the stolen jewellery", another source told the publication.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a heartwarming, retro-filtered photo of her husband, Kanye West, and their 1-year-old son, Saint, which she captioned "My boys", along with a heart emoji.
Kardashian lost jewelry worth 10 million dollars to five people disguised as police who robbed her at the hotel she was staying during the Paris Fashion Week in October.
