Sinaloa Cartel Kingpin snatched

Joaquín „El Chapo“ Guzmán Loera wurde anscheinend verhaftet. Der Mann ist Anführer des Sinaloa Cartels, „the most powerful drug trafficking organization in the world“ (Wikipedia).

Guzman, known as "El Chapo" (Shorty) in Spanish, runs Mexico's infamous Sinaloa Cartel and was even included on a Forbes' list of billionaires. The cartel has been fighting a brutal war with other gangs over turf and drug-trafficking routes to the United States.

The United States had placed a $5 million bounty on Guzman's head and authorities in Chicago last year dubbed him the city's first Public Enemy No.1 since gangster Al Capone.
