  • Notorious French Gangster Escapes Paris Prison By Helicopter

Simultaneously, a helicopter landed in the prison courtyard, which was not covered by any nets.

Faid was sentenced to 25 years for his role as the suspected mastermind of an attempted armed robbery that led to the 2010 death of 26-year-old policewoman Aurelie Fouquet, who was killed in a shootout, according to the Associated Press.

Faid, who was once the most-wanted criminal of France, pulled off an earlier prison break in April 2013 when he took four prison guards hostage and used explosives hidden in tissue packets to blast his way through several gates.

Redoine Faid was in prison for armed robbery.

Sunday's escape from the penitentiary in Reau in the French capital's southeastern suburbs took just minutes, the prison authority said, adding that no one had been injured.

Faid was convicted for the murder of the policewoman along with two accomplices, all considered involved in the deadly shooting. It was then found burnt out by local police.

Faid has been behind bars since mid-2011 for breaking the terms of his parole over past convictions for bank robberies and brazen heists of cash-in-transit vehicles.

It will also help the Warriors save in luxury tax money, which is projected to be close to 20 million according to Marks. Kerr is entering the final season of the five-year, $25 million deal that he signed in May of 2014.

Armed with a pistol, he briefly took four guards hostage before escaping in a waiting getaway auto.

A union representative at Reau Prison, Martial Delabroye, told BFM television that two men dressed in black, wearing balaclavas and police armbands entered in the prison to look for Faid.

Faid was eventually recaptured six weeks later at a hotel in an industrial area on the outskirts of Paris.

He wrote that he had watched the film dozens of times to ideal his bank-robbing prowess.

"In the corner of his mind, he never lost the idea of escaping".

The helicopter, which was registered in Belgium, landed in the prison's courtyard at around 11.20am and was later found partially burned.
