Public Enemy Number One Arrested In Mexico

By Sara Niles

 By using the term Public Enemy, I don’t mean the movie  with a similar name: 

I mean a living, breathing drug lord of the type the movies are made about, and one of the world’s richest men, no doubt. The man had an escape route built under his bathtub; although it did not deter the teams of Mexican troops from swooping in and taking him into custody over this past weekend. The charges, among many, are organized crime and drug trafficking. Guzman escaped from prison in 2001 from Mexico’s high-security Puente Grande prison, after having served time since 1993-he was carried out in a laundry cart. If Guzman is extradited to the U.S., escape may become more complicated.

One of the world’s richest men: Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán

Guzman heads aMulti-billion dollar empire and has been indicted in Eight United States courts:
“ He has been indicted in San Diego, the Southern and Eastern districts of New York, Chicago, Texas, Florida and New Hampshire
