The toys were stolen mainly from big Parisian stores

French police have arrested a 72-year-old woman on suspicion of stealing hundreds of items from toy shops to sell them on the internet.

The manager of a Paris toy shop alerted police after spotting an online ad for items taken from its shelves.

A search of the woman’s home uncovered about 1,000 toys – most of them in their original packaging – stolen mainly from large Parisian stores.

Police also found €40,000 euros (£35,000; $45,000) in cash.

Prosecutors told French media that she had admitted to the thefts and had acted “out of idleness”.
