Holy Shit You Won’t Believe How Many Weapons ‘El Chapo’ Had Stocked In His Hideout
At 1:19PM Friday afternoon, Mexico’s president Enrique Pena Nieto took to Twitter to announce that the world’s most wanted drug kingpin, leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, has been captured by Mexican law enforcement. Easily the biggest humblebrag tweet of 2016 so far, given El Chapo’s reputation of embarrassing Mexican officials on numerous occasions, like that one time he escaped prison via a mile-long underground tunnel on a motorcycle in July. Straight-out of a movie stuff.
President Nieto’s tweet translates to: “Mission accomplished : we have it. I want to inform Mexicans Joaquin Guzman Loera has been arrested.”
There was reportedly up to $5,000,000USD bounty on information leading to El Chapo’s capture. Whoa.
President Nieto released a statement in conjunction with his tweet, indicating that U.S. authorities were also involved in the effort to recapture the escaped kingpin. This is the second time El Chapo has been recaptured after escaping prison.
