Brandt Haiti’s government offered a $22,372 or 1 million gourde reward for information leading to Brandt’s capture, and launched a countrywide manhunt for him and 328 other inmates — accused rapists, robbers and kidnappers among them — who also got away Sunday morning.“Regardless of where the person is, once they are in the territory, we will get them,” Pierre Estanislas Cantave Neptune, secretary of state for public security, said during a Monday news conference.Neptune noted that authorities have set up police checkpoints, reenforced the porous border with the Dominican Republic and put Jamaican and Dominican officials and Interpol on alert.“If we don’t get them today,” he said, “we will get them tomorrow anyhow.”Haiti National Police Chief Godson Orélus called the incident regrettable but not uncommon. He said an administrative investigation was underway to determine if anyone inside the prison was involved. via – MiamiHerald.com
