Notorious Mexican drug kingpin, who has previously escaped from prison, well, has done it again. Joaquin Guzman, or most commonly known to the world as “El Chapo,” has escaped from Mexico’s Altiplano maximum-security prison through a well- built, lighted, and ventilated tunnel that ended in a half-built house in a rural farm field near the prison.

The 56-year-old Chapo gained power a couple of decades ago as head of the Sinaloa drug cartel that the Chicago Crime Commission called him Public Enemy No. 1, a label applied to gangster Al Capone back in 1930s. Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto said:

This represents without a doubt an affront to the Mexican state, but I also have confidence in the institutions of the Mexican state … that they have the strength and determination to recapture this criminal.

Leads on whether or not they have a trace or an idea where the the elusive kingpin is are still undetermined. Looks like were going to have to keep our eyes peeled to see how this one pans out…Stay tuned.

Welp, it looks like now that El Chapo is free, weed prices are extremely high because of the drought, but cocaine will be extremely cheap now that El Chapo is free! #FreeWorkForEverybody
