El Chapo Is Captured . . . Again

After a six-month-long odyssey which saw him escape from from a maximum-security prison in Mexico, notorious drug kingpin, Joaquín Guzmán Loera – also known as “El Chapo”- has been arrested by the Mexican authorities according to President Enrique Peña Nieto.

After an intense gun battle in the city of Los Mochis, a seaside area in the Sinaloa state, President Nieto announced, “Mission Accomplished: We have him. I would like to inform the Mexican people that Joaquín Guzmán Loera has been detained.”

According to The New York Times, “The mission began shortly before 5 a.m. Friday, the Mexican authorities said, after an anonymous tip came in from a citizen concerned about armed men in a nearby home. The authorities said they went to the house, where they were fired upon. The operation was conducted by Mexico’s most-trusted military wing, the Marines, which captured Mr. Guzmán in early 2014, before his escape last July.”

Thanks to his numerous and successful escapes in the past, it remains to be seen if El Chapo remains in Mexico or if he is extradited to the United States to be incarcerated in one of the numerous “supermax” facilities there.
