According to unconfirmed reports by the Associated Press, the notorious Mexican drug lord, Joaquín “Chapo” Guzmán has been arrested in Sinaloa, Mexico. “Chapo” (shorty) Guzmán is acknowledged as the head of the Sinaloa cartel.
Mexican authorities have yet to confirm this news. However, the BBC has also divulged this news.
There are not much details so far about the alleged apprehension, but the AP states Guzmán was captured alive in a beach resort by Mexican and U.S. law enforcement agents.
“Chapo” Guzmán broke out of a maximum security federal prison more than ten years ago, supposedly with help from the authorities. He has been in control of most of the drug smuggling activities in the northern part of the country.
