Mexico confirms arrest of "El Chapo"
Mexico City, Feb 22 (EFE).- Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Saturday confirmed the arrest of the world's most notorious and powerful drug
lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" (Shorty) Guzman, saying he was captured by marines during a joint security-force operation in the Pacific resort city of
Mazatlan.Murillo said an associate of Guzman's was arrested in the same operation, which was months in the making and "impeccably executed."
Mexican authorities had the "full collaboration of U.S. agencies," the attorney general said.
Well, the worlds richest and most powerful drugs lord has been arrested, again. They got him in 1993, but he "mysteriously" escaped from prison in a
laundry truck in 2001, with only seven years left of his sentance.
The guy has a fortune estimated by Forbes to be 1.153.000.00 dollares, and that was three years ago.
Along with his arrest, the operation also took off the streets -
93 assault rifles
2 grenade launchers
1 rocket launcher
43 cars, 19 of which were armoured.
Now, it just remains to see who takes over the business, will the drugs war heat up because Guzmans behind bars and the other family's try to take
over his turf?
It will be intesting to see if Guzman stays behind bars this time.
Maybe he'll start to sing about the politicians and police that have protected him.
