Faid's latest flight from prison came after two or three heavily armed men hijacked a helicopter and forced the pilot to fly to Faid's prison in Seine-et-Marne, near Paris, the French Interior Ministry said.

This picture taken on July 1, 2018 in Aulnay-sous-Bois, shows a forensic police officer investigating a vehicle abandoned by French armed robber Redoine Faid at O'Parinor shopping mall parking after his escape onboard a helicopter from a prison.

Redoine Faid, 46, who previously said his life of crime was inspired by films such as Scarface, broke out of the prison with the help of three armed accomplices, according to sources close to the case.

Four prison wardens were taken hostage during the prior attempt, and dynamite was used to escape.

He was on the run for six weeks and had changed his appearance before police captured him in a hotel in an industrial area on the outskirts of Paris with an accomplice.

Faid was sentenced to 25 years in the 2010 death of a young policewoman killed during a botched robbery.

Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet told Europe 1 radio that she had sent a team of inspectors to the jail "to see whether the security measures were defective so that we can rectify them".

Relatives and friends were trying to help the family through an online fundraising campaign that had raised $105,000 by Tuesday. Both of her lower legs were amputated and she needs surgery on her spine for a lumbar disk fracture, the page said.


The three accomplices successfully helped Faid escape and later landed the aircraft 37 miles from the prison before setting it alight and fleeing in a black Renault auto. Just months before his escape, drones were spotted flying above the prison which are now believed to be linked to the breakout.

Redoine Faid's break-out has triggered a huge manhunt around the French capital. Police later found a burnt out black Renault, suspected of being the getaway auto, in Aulnay-sous-Bois, another suburb of the French capital.

French police are also investigating the possibility that Faid may now be disguised as an Orthodox Jew and on his way to Israel.

Incredibly, it's not the first time Faid has been involved in a spectacular jailbreak.

Although he was sentenced to 30 years in prison for these activities, he was released on parole after 10 years.

The brochure included no mention of a courtyard - large enough for a light utility helicopter such as, say, an Aerospatiale Alouette II - that would, notably, be the only part of the prison not covered by "anti-helicopter netting", according to the Associated Press. "Behind all his manners - he is very polite - he always hid his game".
