A man broke into a police station in Nice, in the south of France, and came out dressed in a police uniform and armed, French police said on Friday, who have launched an investigation into the incident.

Sunday evening, the 22-year-old man would have entered through the main gate of the Auvare national police barracks, in the center of Nice.

After having surveyed part of the premises, he would have come out without being worried, with a police uniform, a bulletproof vest as well as a collector's revolver and 9 mm caliber cartridges, according to the Nice-Matin newspaper, which revealed the case.

Questioned by AFP, the police “confirmed the facts”, as well as the referral to the General Inspectorate of the National Police (IGPN), the police force.

The young man, depressed, who came to the police the next day, was sentenced to one year in prison, including six months suspended, the firm part of the sentence being to be carried out under an electronic bracelet.

Frédéric Pizzini, director of the Alpes-Maritimes police, clarified that the investigation should “reveal possible faults and propose sanctions”, adding that “written instructions have been passed to recall the rules”.

The young intruder, who according to Nice-Matin lives in the sensitive district of Les Moulins, brought back neither the uniform nor the bulletproof vest, nor the stolen weapon or the ammunition, assuring that his father had thrown them in a trash can.
