Four Dominicans were arrested at Charles de Gaulle airport last Thursday in the sting, which was set up by the drugs squad officers acting on a tip-off, according to a report in Le Parisien newspaper.
Officers followed two men who picked up the shipment of shoes and took them into eastern Paris and then arrested them along with two others, it said.
