Re-arrested Drug Baron El Chapo Returns To Prison Where He Escaped From

After six months on the run, Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will return to the same maximum security prison from which he escaped, authorities said.

Guzman used an elaborate underground tunnel to break out of a federal prison in July.

He was recaptured Friday after the Mexican navy raided a home in the coastal city of Los Mochis.

Mexican forces transferred Guzman from an armored vehicle and into a helicopter late Friday night after his arrest in his native Sinaloa state.

Guzman’s prison escape — his second one in 14 years — embarrassed the Mexican government and made him a symbol of ineptitude and corruption.
