NYPD Officer Promoted After Helping Bring El Chapo to Justice

January 27, 2017  | 

A 15-year NYPD veteran who worked on the investigation that led to the arrest of Mexican drug lord El Chapo has been made detective first grade, police said Friday, reports the New York Daily News.

Det. Diana Spangenberg, 39, a member of the New York Drug Enforcement Task Force, received the new rank at the department's promotion ceremony at Police Headquarters, officials said.

Authorities extradited Joaquin (El Chapo) Guzman, the notorious head of the Sinaloa cartel, from Mexico to New York on Jan. 19.

Spangenberg was one of the officers who took El Chapo into custody when he landed in New York — and acted as a translator for the drug lord when he was being questioned.
