El Chapo Guzman is no amateur when it comes to hiding from the police and escaping from prison. With decades of experience in the drug trafficking trade, El Chapo has years of practice inventing the most complex of ways to smuggle large quantities of illegal drugs into the United States, keeping his organization in check, while at the same time managing to stay away from jail.
However, the United States’ technological developments and expertise in finding escaped convicts and collaboration with the Mexican authorities may be hard for him to beat. Having escaped from a maximum prison in Mexico earlier on in the year, El Chapo’s escape dealt a big blow to the United States’ trust in Mexico to keep the infamous drug lord behind bars. Currently, the Mexican authorities, and specifically the current president of Mexico – Enrique Peña Nieto, is resolute in finding him, so as to cement his legacy by incarcerating all the top heads of the country’s biggest cartels.
