Mexico’s El Chapo Remains Free Even With USD3.8 Million Reward

MEXICO – Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, will receive USD3.8 million in rewards.

The reward was offered immediately after Guzman escaped from the maximum security prison in Almoloya de Juarez Saturday night.

Authorities still have not received any information leading to the recapture of El Chapo as of Tuesday afternoon.

As the clock ticks, authorities fear that El Chapo will never be seen again.

On Monday night, the the country’s attorney general announced a reward of up to 60 million pesos (USD3.8 million) for information leading to Guzman’s capture.

She also released what she said was a recent photograph of the cartel kingpin. The image shows Guzman with a shaved head and face — and without the trademark mustache he sported when authorities nabbed him last year.

A Mexican official said Guzman is likely hiding out in the sprawling metropolis of Mexico City. – BusinessNewsAsia.com
