Gassed during burglary

Button and Michibata are gassed at their St. Tropez villa, while robbers steal belongings worth £300,000. French police believe the gang had been watching the villa for days before letting off a cannister of anaesthetic gas into an air-conditioning vent. The raiders then broke into the luxury mansion and even walked around the couple’s bed while the couple lay unconscious. They took items including Michibata’s £250,000 engagement ring. Three friends who were staying in the villa are also believed to have been rendered unconscious. The group only discovered they had been targeted when they woke up the next morning and found the mansion ransacked and the engagement ring missing. Local police are trying to identify the burglars using CCTV. Source:

Police have told Jenson they’re convinced the burglars gassed the house using the air conditioning units. Over the past five years, it’s becoming an increasingly common way for top criminals to launch raids on expensive properties in the area without being disturbed. Jenson is convinced that’s what happened too. The burglars were in the same room as him and Jessica, rifling through all their drawers. But they weren’t disturbed at all because the effects of the gas gives the burglars free reign. It was the same for their three other friends — they were all completely out of it.

Stolen car found

Team Xtreme’s stolen race car is found abandoned in in a wooded area near Loganville, Georgia. The discovery is too late for Kvapil and the team to compete in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Kvapil:

It’s really bizarre. You can handle maybe getting a flat tire, or getting caught up in a wreck, or a blown engine, something that actually happens on the race track. Or you don’t qualify, because you don’t have enough speed. But to not even get a chance … that’s pretty disheartening.

The chef and proprietor, Thomas Keller, tweets:

On Christmas day, The French Laundry was the victim of a robbery. Specific wines of specific value were stolen (DRC & Screaming Eagle). We have complete trust in the authorities leading the investigation, and we welcome any information our community may have regarding the event…We are confident that if and when any of the stolen bottles appear in public, they will immediately raise questions and red flags among the wine knowledgeable.
