This Latest Jail Break Was A Major Operation

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, leader of Mexico's powerful Sinaloa drug cartel, is now on the run as authorities mount an immense manhunt for the criminal kingpin.

mile-long tunnel, measuring five-and-a-half feet high and two-and-a-half feet wide was built under the prison to facilitate Guzman's escape. The passage was illuminated, ventilated and had a specialized motorcycle inside it.

Guzman took the tunnel after slipping through a hole built into the shower area of his cell and climbing down a long ladder. The Sinaloa cartel is believed to have built sophisticated and extensive tunnels in the past for transport of drugs, using complicated drilling equipment to bore through miles of earth.

An investigation by El Universal found that between the years 2000 and 2012, the U.S. government had an arrangement with Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel that allowed the organization to smuggle billions of dollars of drugs while Sinaloa provided information on rival cartels.

Sinaloa, led by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, supplies 80% of the drugs entering the Chicago area and has a presence in cities across the U.S.

There have long been allegations that Guzman, considered to be "the world’s most powerful drug trafficker," coordinates with American authorities.

But the El Universal investigation is the first to publish court documents that include corroborating testimony from a DEA agent and a Justice Department official.
