Paul Staehle from 90 Day Fiance shared the update in the early morning hours. He said he had just discovered that he and Karine were the victims of a robbery. Paul has shared photos of the aftermath. All his shelves and drawers are empty and the television has been taken off the wall bracket. The TLC couple had plans to return to Brazil to collect their belongings, so luckily they were not there when the burglary took place.
90 Day Fiance celeb Paul Staehle went on to say that he was “destroyed” by the news. And he added how the criminals managed to break into his house. It seems that the perpetrators entered through his “balcony door”. Meanwhile, Paul Staehle said that they took “everything of value”.

90 Day Fiance: Crime High in Manaus, Brazil
Crime figures have always been a concern for Paul Staehle – especially when he decided to move to Brazil to be with 90 Day Fiance woman Karine Martins. When he first arrived on The Other Way, the high level of crime was something he worried about. And in this case, concern seems absolutely justified. It is not clear where Karine Martins and husband Paul Staehle were at the time of the incident. But it could have been much worse if the family had been home.
Manaus is one of the more dangerous cities in the South American country. Crime rates are high there, even though it remains a popular travel destination among tourists. It had the highest number of murders in 2016. And it scores high for other crimes such as theft, armed robbery and issues related to drug trafficking and use. And it seems that 90 Day Fiance pair Paul Staehle and Karine Martins are the last victims of that.
There are a number of discussion topics among travelers who advise not to visit certain places in Manaus – especially at night. And some even provide examples to have their valuables taken from them in broad daylight. Meanwhile, it also scores as a high crime area for a number of other things.
What Happens Now with Karine & Paul?
Currently there are not many details about the incident. But it seems that Karine and Paul Staehle still let everything sink in. It is possible that more details will come to light in the coming days. Many 90 Day Fiance fans and cast members reach out to them and offer their sympathy.
Karine Martins and Paul Staehle recently celebrated their two-year anniversary together. And this is definitely not something that anyone would want to follow. But it seems that the 90 Day Fiance family is safe and handles things in the aftermath. It is worth keeping an eye on further developments.
