Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera was transferred from the Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City to prison late January 8.
During an early morning strike by Mexican police and marines in Town Los Mochis in northwestern state of Sinaloa on January 8, Guzman was hunted down, six months after his second prison break.
During the foray into a house in Los Mochis at 06:00 a.m., security forces exchanged shots with suspected accomplices of Guzman, leaving at least five dead and six captured.
This was the third time that Guzman was seized , after being arrested in 1993 and 2014.
However, he pulled off two daring escapes from maximum-security prisons in 2001 hiding in a laundry cart, and in 2015 through a tunnel about a mile long leading into his jail cell.
