Elaborate tunnels: Guzman escaped firstly through an open steel reinforced door leading to a series of interconnected tunnels in the city's drainage system ...
An open steel reinforced door leads to a series of interconnected tunnels in the city’s drainage system in the city of Culiacan, Mexico, Sunday Feb. 23, 2014. A day after troops narrowly missed infamous drug boss Joaquin Guzman Loera, “El Chapo” in Culiacan, one of his top aides was arrested. Officials said he told investigators that he picked up Guzman from a drainage pipe and helped him flee to Mazatlan but a wiretap being monitored by ICE agents in southern Arizona provided the final clue that led to the arrest of one of the worlds most wanted men.

they are investigating cells of the Sinaola cartel that could be operating in our country, as well as other Mexican drug cartels drug related issues.

The investigation is being conducted by the Sección de Estupefacientes (Narcotics Section). The OIJ added that it will be willing to collaborate fully with Mexican authorities, if required, with the information it collects in the country.

El Chapo (which means “short” in Spanish) has evaded police in the United States and Mexico for 13 years before being caught by Mexican polices Saturday after a masterful piece of intelligence work. OIJ issued an invitation for Mexican police to work with them.

El Chapo has been accused of being the mastermind of dozens of murders in Mexico, the southern U.S. and Chicago. U.S. authorities want him, although it was Mexico that managed to nab him. In fact, recently, Mexican police just missed him as they raided one of his safe houses.

The cartel exported tons of cocaine and marijuana into the U.S. during decades. This particular cartel has been thought to have worked here since 2006 when police nabbed 116 kilos of cocaine allegedly belonging to it.

In 2010, the U.S. State Department warned Costa Rica that Sinaloa was establishing in local soil and using the country as a pipeline to transport drugs from South America to the United States. At this point, it is uncertain if the helipads along the northern border are connected with this particular cartel.

Although the operation to capture Guzman was carried on with the efficiency similar to that of U.S. Special Forces tracking Bin Laden, U.S. politicians are worried that Guzman might slip through the courts in Mexico because of rampant corruption.
