(Cite Soleil, Haiti) -- Adding to the misery that is Haiti are now reports of armed gangs returning to rule over a Haitian slum after Tuesday's earthquake damaged the national penitentiary.

An estimated three-thousand inmates escape through the crumbling walls of the prison.

Members of a notorious armed gang has returned to Cite Soleil, a seaside city of 300-thousand before the quake.

It's reported that the gang members, riding motorcycles and toting assault rifles stolen from prison guards, road to the Justice Ministry on Saturday and set it on fire to burn their incarceration and criminal records.

Since taking office in 2006, one of achievements of Haitian President Rene Preval has been to pacify the Cite Soleil.

Now, the lawlessness has returned.

Haitian National Police Chief Mario Andresol said he and his force would arrest the criminals as they had in the past.
