Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, one of the most wanted people in both America and Mexico, was captured by Mexican authorities on January 8th. The capture was not without incident. A shootout left five Sinaloa cartel members dead and six captured. Only one member of the Mexican military force was injured. During the chaos of the raid, Guzman managed to get to a secret passageway in his safe-house which led to a drain system underneath the streets of Los Mochis. He eventually resurfaced when it started to rain. The capture was three days short of being exactly six months from when El Chapo escaped prison.
