Two young men domiciled in Nantes (Loire-Atlantique) were placed in police custody on Tuesday, August 31. They are suspected of having participated in the creation of a potentially explosive device, which ultimately turned out to be fictitious.

“The demining service has established that the worrying device does not have active material and that everything is fictitious”, declared at the end of the afternoon Brigadier Ludovic Eudes, in charge of the communication of the police force, while specifying that the custody was “still in progress”.

no radicalization established at this stage

Arrested by the Raid, the individuals “lived on the 3rd floor of the building” doomed to destruction and refused to go out. They are suspected of “having participated directly or indirectly in the design of a potentially explosive or incendiary device,” Mr. Eudes said earlier in the afternoon, during a press briefing on the spot. “For the moment, there is no radicalization established among these people,” said the brigadier.

These are employees of the lessor Nantes Habitat, owner of the premises, who discovered Tuesday around 11:00 am, in an apartment on the second floor from which emanated music, “a travel or sports bag covered with kraft paper from which came out electrical cables ”as they toured the building. A security perimeter was immediately established around the area. He was up around 6.30 p.m.

nearly 100 people mobilized

In addition to these two men, a squatter was also arrested for an identity check before being released. Officially, only one apartment was still occupied by a title tenant. “There is a conflict with the landlord who had set up an eviction procedure, but people were still inside the building,” added Ludovic Eudes.

In total, nearly 100 people were mobilized to secure the premises, teams from the Departmental Directorate of Public Security, the Raid, the Secure Field Brigade, demining services and firefighters.
