Police Arrest Suspects in Evinx Daniel Case

Port-au-Prince police in search for hotelier, Evinx Daniel, have not yet apprehended him. But they have arrested several people in connection with the case. A police spokesperson made the announcement on Thursday, January, 23, 2014.


Daniel, a very successful businessman, not only is the owner of Dan's Creek Hotel, bordering the oceanfront in Port-Salut, a western town; he is also in the export business, operating out of Port-Salut also. Daniel's hotel empire has attracted many tourists from abroad, helping Haiti's tourist industry stay afloat.

Daniel was last sighted on January 5, 2014, according to police reports. They discovered his car parked at a gas station just outside Gonaives, a port city in Ouest Department. It was driven to a Port-au-Prince courthouse and is being thoroughly inspected for clues.

The police are withholding details of the suspects taken into custody, because they are still investigating the case for further clues and witnesses regarding Daniel and his whereabouts. As far as it is known, no award has been posted to help find Daniel and arrest him.

Daniel is attracting media attention around the world, because he is a high-profile drug trafficker. He runs a slick operation and has managed to elude authorities, who can't keep pace with his sprints outside the country.

Back in September 2013, the police managed to catch up with him and detain him. However, the judge he appeared before ordered him released, due to no evidence to support the charges against him.
