Joaquin Guzman, aka El Chapo, is a pretty big hitter in the world of Mexican drug cartels. Well, at least he was before his recent arrest. Sure, he can still assert some authority from behind bars, but his days of high living and criminality are mostly done for. And it all happened in the blink of an eye. With no prior warning, Mexican Marines kicked in El Chapo’s door arrested him.
Then they searched his house and found something truly unique and incredible…
Here is 60 year-old Joaquin Guzman, being arrested for heading up the dreaded Sinaloa cartel.
And here’s the Marines finding perhaps the weirdest thing they’ll ever see underneath a bathtub!
He had an elaborate escape route that started directly under a specially fitted tub and led into a secret underground network below his house.
Which makes you wonder why he didn’t attempt an escape from his arrest really, doesn’t it? The boys kicking in his doors really must have taken him by surprise!
The tunnel led into the city of Culiacan’s drainage system, so you’d want water-resistant shoes on!
The tunnels were unknown to authorities before the bust, so they were also used for transporting drugs and guns and money out of his house without anyone seeing.
Just imagine it – a veritable river of illegal goods flowing freely below the city…
Crime doesn’t pay, folks! You always get caught in the end…
