VIDEO: How Mexican Police Captured Cartel Kingpin

Police finally caught Mexico’s most wanted criminal, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, over the weekend, after a decade-long manhunt for the man dubbed the most powerful drug trafficker in the world

Guzmán, alleged head of the Sinaloa cartel, was arrested in a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico, bringing a likely end to one of the most storied drug trafficking careers in recent history.

During the cartel leader’s nearly 13 years on the lam, Guzmán was able to often escape police and army raids through secret tunnels that also tied in with the city’s sewage system. The search for Guzmán was marked by rumors and close calls, but in recent months, the police narrowed down the search for the suspected drug trafficker through a range of five wiretaps, raids on his close associates and a network of informants, Time reports.

U.S. authorities are expected to seek extradition of Guzmán, but Mexico will likely deny the request, CNN reports.

Should be noted that Guzman was captured by Mexican Marines...not police. Mexico does not have the restrictions against using military domestically that the US does. Mexican Marines have received substantial training and assistance from US Marines in recent years, maybe its paying off.

That s.o.b. p.o.s. will be back out.....soon. Mexico is so corrupt it's not even funny. Of course these a**holes aren't going to extradite guzman to the U.S. That will never happen. Anyways I hope guzman gets what's coming to him.
