Police detained the men as they worked at a cemetery in Pantin in the north Paris suburbs, where last month four other men, including another three grave-diggers, were arrested.
The first two arrests came on the night of November 25, when police found 10 gold teeth on one of the suspects who were both wearing miners' headlamps and boots covered with fresh earth.
A police source said the thieves located fresh graves during the day and then returned at night to rob them.
