Ten days after the deadly attack on a prison van in Incarville (Eure) which enabled the escape of Mohamed Amra, the hunt for the fugitive and his accomplices continues, for the moment without success. But the police remain confident.

Where is Mohamed Amra? And his accomplices who helped him escape from the prison van that was taking him back from an appointment with a magistrate, killing two agents in the attack?

Round the clock

Ten days after the events, the hunt for “the fly” continued. The drug trafficker, whose ultra-dangerous profile was discovered in recent days thanks to prison wiretapping revealed in the media, is still on the loose. The device to find it remains important. “A section of the Paris prosecutor’s office is mobilized 24 hours a day on these files”, assured the Paris public prosecutor, Laure Beccuau, this week on BFM. On the ground, 350 police officers from the National Fugitive Search Brigade (BNRF) and the Repression and Intervention Brigade (BRI) take turns.Round the clock”doing “the 3-8”. The Amra file immediately became the priority, they will remain mobilized “as long as it takes”commented the prosecutor.

“They settle down, they hide”

Laure Beccuau also mentioned “serious leads”. “There are investigations both for the collection of testimonies and technical investigations which continue to develop,” she added. So why no results so far? “The escapees and their accomplices are vulnerable until they reach a first hideout. Then they settle down, hunker down a little. It can last several days. From that moment on, helicopters and roadblocks are no problem. is no longer of much use”, testifies a police officer involved in the investigation in Le Parisien.

“There are hundreds of us”

However, he, like the authorities, remains confident. “There are hundreds of us and they are only a handful and they cannot relax.” “However, a fugitive needs help, money and this is often where mistakes are made. He is not alone, an accomplice can also make a misstep. He can also be thrown away. is a drug trafficker and, in this environment, the competitors are ready to do anything. On the run, you no longer have any friends.said another, still at Le Parisien.

Redouane Faïd lasted 3 months

They remember that Redouane Faïd, although considered the king of escape, lasted a maximum of three months during his two escapes. Thought he was far from France, he was arrested in 2018 in an apartment in Creil (Oise), the town where he is from. “Fleeing abroad is sometimes more difficult and it’s always more expensive,” sums up a police officer.


Wear and patience are therefore the key words to find Amra and her accomplices. Be careful too, as we know their determination. The only problem for investigators: political and media pressure. “It’s a very hot, very burning issue, which is being followed at all levels,” a Source close to the matter told 20 Minutes. According to our colleagues, the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin remains particularly informed of the investigations every day.
