French convict escapes from prison via a helicopter

In his many interviews, he admitted that he sometimes took inspiration for his crimes (armed robberies, mostly) in movies like "The Heat" and "Scarface", and even laughed once that, if cops learned the lesson from Hollywood movies, crime could go down by 50%.

"This was a spectacular escape". He was arrested in 1998 after three years on the run in Switzerland and Israel, according to the French media.

The interior ministry said a huge police response has been ordered in an attempt to catch the fugitive, who has been described as risky.

The dramatic jailbreak took place after a helicopter pilot was taken hostage by three gunmen and forced to land at the prison.

Some 2,900 French police and gendarmes were Monday searching for a convicted armed robber, the Interior Ministry said, a day after a helicopter-borne commando sprung him from a jail south of Paris. Later, the helicopter was found dumped in a suburb after the criminals burned it just northeast of Paris.

The torched vehicle was later found by the side of a road near Lille.

These men obtained the helicopter from a local flying club in the Paris region, taking the pilot hostage.

Justice Minister Belloubet has called for an immediate review of the prison system in France, criticizing security at the prison where Faid escaped as "passive".

He was caught and placed back in jail by the French authorities within six weeks.

A hotel employee told AFP at the time that Faid had been in the hotel for a few days and had paid for the room using cash.

Officials said drones seen buzzing above the prison months ago may have been on a reconnaissance mission ahead of the escape.

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

In this photo dated November 22, 2010, notorious French criminal Redoine Faid poses prior to an interview with French all-news TV channel, LCI, as he was promoting his book, in Boulogne-Billancourt, outside Paris, France.

Police nicknamed him "The Author" for the two books he co-wrote about his youth.

Philippe Veroni, deputy director of France's organized crime police unit, said Tuesday that Faid had clearly planned the prison break carefully and had a band of accomplices willing to risk everything.

"In the corner of his mind, he never lost the idea of escaping. Behind all his manners - he is very polite - he always hid his game".
