Sinaloa Cartel chief ‘El Chapo’ captured alive, says U.S. official | Toronto Star
MEXICO CITY—The head of Mexico’s Sinaloa Cartel was captured overnight by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico, The Associated Press has learned.
A senior U.S. law enforcement official said Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was taken alive overnight in the beach resort town. The official was not authorized to discuss the arrest and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Good news and surprising considering it seemed like he had most of the Mexican government in his pocket for awhile.
