Operation Gargoyle: Pursuit, capture and confessions of El Chapo

Noticieros Televisa (2-24-2014) By Carlos Loret de Mola Fuente

Respectful, using no bad language, and in an even voice, Chapo 
 confessed to having killed between 2,000 and 3,000 persons"
Translated by unvato for Borderland Beat (parts of the text interlinks to the video found at bottom)

CIUDAD DE MEXICO, Mexico, February 24, 2014.- On January 19th of this year, 200 elite Mexican Navy marines landed in the Culiacán, Sinaloa, airport.

It was the start of Operation Gargoyle.

This is the story of how Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera, the most wanted man in the world, was located, pursued, surrounded and captured, according to the testimony of the Navy soldiers who arrested him, their commanders who coordinated the operation, and the elements of the PGR (Attorney General) who assisted. 
This is the building.
This is the apartment.
This is the room.
This is the bath.
And behind this door, the last hideaway of 'El Chapo' Guzman.
Here, he was apprehended by an elite commando, made up of six marine troops.

To locate him, they tapped his phones, they used aircraft to spy on him, they intercepted his radio communications, they had recent photographs of him, they figured out he had three weaknesses (money, women and candy), that he was a fan of Tutsi-Pop and peanuts, that he frequently ordered good food from restaurants, that he never spent more than two days under the same roof, that he dyed his hair and mustache, that he had exercise walking machines in all his safe houses, that he had recently lost weight, that he didn't use a cell phone, that many times he would make his men eat the food they took him to make sure it wasn't poisoned, that he didn't use drugs any more, that he was so mistrustful that he allowed only four people to be with him at all times: Chaneke, his chief of security; Condor, his chief of communications;  Nariz, his main errand boy, all three former members of Army Special Forces, and his cook.

It was 6:00 a.m., Mazatlan, Sinaloa, time, 7:00 a.m. Central Mexico time, this past Saturday, February 22, when Joaquin Guzman Loera showed his face through the bathroom door of the main bedroom in apartment No. 401 in the Torre Miramar (Miramar Tower) on the Mazatlan coast.  Then he showed his unarmed hands and, on being firmly told to surrender because he was surrounded, he responded four times: "OK". 

But to be exact, the story of the arrest of the most wanted man in the world began 120 miles from here, a month ago, in a place in the middle of nowhere.

There's nothing to see anywhere. Wherever one turns, it's swamp, dirt and bushes; for "El Chapo Guzman", his new jewel, the ranch in the community of Sanchez Celis, in the municipality of Culiacán
Chapo's 'Miramar' condo is now rendered a tourist attraction
For the authorities, Plan 'A'.

Here's where they wanted to capture him. It looked like an ideal place to them because there were no civilians around, because it is much more difficult to escape and get lost.

In addition, government intelligence reports pointed out that Guzman Loera visited the property only with his family, to spend time with his children, and for that reason, he preferred that there not be a lot of weapons and bodyguards around.

This is the access to the ranch. With mosquito netting that covers the garage completely, so that if somebody were lost around there, taking pictures or getting ready to shoot, he would not have a target, would not be able to see him, could not photograph him.

He would get down from his vehicle parked here, knowing full well that they could be spying on him from the air, with the use of satellite systems or aircraft. The route remains covered all the way, roofed until you get to the house. This is the main ranch house, which, according to what they tell us, was still under construction, and here, outside, we can see a new platform in this swamp, and the paradise he had constructed to visit with his family; Joaquin Guzman Loera.

The ranch is a complex of bungalows with a main house that surround a jacuzzi, a wading pool and a swimming pool with a bar.

It's all new.

The guest room is a luxurious suite of 150 meters square, with glowing furniture and with all the amenities.

The main house includes a principal bedroom, where presumably the leader of the Sinaloa cartel slept, and two adjacent rooms for the children and the nannies, joined by a dining room and an open kitchen.

One bungalow is a play room still being furnished, another one has space for ladies' and men's rooms; another is a kitchen that can cook for a banquet.

Government technology also allowed observation of last minute work and detected when "Chapo" got there, much earlier than they had expected him.

That's why Plan 'A' was aborted. Government agents weren't prepared to proceed against such a powerful objective. And 'Chapo' Guzman never went back to the ranch.

Chapo's new ranch
Plan 'B' was located 21 miles to the north. In the very heart of the city of Culiacán, his bastion.

Authorities say that discretion his strength. He didn't use sports cars or showy pickups, but he did use high quality pickups and automobiles with Level 7 armor, the highest grade available.  He would travel in one vehicle, two at most.

His safe houses, in middle or upper middle class neighborhoods. Government reports describe the homes as attractive, safe and with escape routes. Joaquin Guzman would jump from one house to another, and he felt at ease in Culiacan. The Navy's strategy was to double its presence in the city; patrols, roadblocks, searches, operations. They wanted 'El Chapo' to feel harassed so he would leave the more populated zones and they could capture him in outlying areas.

That was Plan 'B': If Culiacan was his bunker, they wanted to get him out of there.

But he never left. It appears that he did not feel insecure. They understood why on Monday, in the early hours of February 17, when they tried to open the door to his house.

It was Plan 'C'. Take him wherever he was. 200 men went after him.

The intelligence work by Mexican authorities had determined the areas where 'Chapo' Guzman was located. In the early hours of February 17, around 3:00 a.m., they managed to capture a man called "Nariz" ("Nose"), one of the men closest to Mexico's most wanted man, when he was on his way home. "Nariz" was his personal assistant  and would run errands and satisfy his whims.

"Nariz", when he was captured, tried to mislead the authorities. He lied to them about the house where "Chapo" was staying, but the authorities were able to disprove it immediately because their technical abilities has already allowed them to locate precisely the area, the street -- Rio Maya Street --, where "El Chapo" was hiding, so the authorities went there and parked their vehicles.

They parked them right in front of the house where he was staying. With their weapons, a tight group of Marines lit up the windows of the house where they were minutes away from catching "Chapo" Guzman. The moment they shone their lights they saw a light turned on and off, and they were certain that there was somebody inside, probably the most wanted capo in Mexico. The windows closed automatically, so the Marine used special equipment to try to go in through this electric garage door.

Now, let's look at the doors from the inside. They went in through this one, because it didn't have any bolts; they had forgotten to slide the bolts. But this one, this one had two large locks. They didn't open this door, but we're going to go in through here to learn about the house where they were minutes away from capturing "El Chapo" in Culiacan, Sinaloa, and also about what we talked about a little earlier.

This is the door, this is commonly found in any house with an electric door. But what is not common are these security rods that, upon closing, prevent any person from opening  the door. But they had forgotten to close these, they were not locked, and that's where Marine elements went in. They thought they were done, that they had him, that it had been a relatively quick operation.

What they had not counted on was that this door is doubly reinforced with steel.

With a large hammer, called breaching equipment, they began to pound, pound on it. The hammer broke, but the door didn't open. They had to use another hammer, because this door had three ... see how heavy it is. It had three of these pieces of steel placed across the door in such a way that if somebody broke off a piece of the door, only that piece would break off, the rest would not.

Not only that; the four metal compartments were filled with water. What's that for? What they tell us is that when one is hammering on metal, the heat that it generates causes it to bend until it breaks. But when it is filled with water, one, the shock is absorbed, and two, the metal stays cold and won't bend. According to the reports, it took eight minutes to open this door. It normally takes three seconds. Those eight minutes allowed "El Chapo" to escape through a complicated system of tunnels installed under this and other homes in the area.


Let's go inside the house. This is the route the Marines took on Monday, the 17th, just as the sun was coming up. They had waited until that time -- 6 a.m.-- so that in case "Chapo" came out in a vehicle, on foot, or whatever, the helicopters could track him. There's a small storeroom, it has one of these... Christmas trees. There's a bath, and a complete kitchen.

They told us that he kept several homes completely furnished so that he could sleep in the one he would choose at the last minute. He was so mistrustful that he wouldn't tell anybody where he was going to sleep. He simply sent his most trusted people ahead and everything was ready.

Remains of a meal, vegetables. This is the kitchen. One of the characteristics that authorities reveal about "El Chapo" is that he was a very paranoid man. The authorities say that he maintained a television monitor that showed everything that was happening outside and inside the house, so he was always on alert. According to the marines, when they got inside the house at 6:00 a.m., the monitors were switched on.

Let's go back to the house, where we'll find the key point, the escape point.

Peanuts to eat while watching TV, and again, the security monitor. The house has two floors; on top, there are living areas and a lot of security equipment. There are bathroom supplies, clothing on the floor, this is the bedroom, and again, the TV and the monitoring equipment. The government followed "Chapo" Guzman's activities very closely. They say that Buchanan's '18' was his favorite drink. People close to him said he no longer took drugs, like he did before.

And this was the key. The marines got inside and they felt very frustrated because they thought they had him, but those eight minutes gave "Chapo" the advantage.

Let's see how he escaped. This is the bathroom in the bedroom that is located on the first floor where they almost got Guzman Loera. And this is the tub, in reality the tunnel. A hydraulic system lifts the tub and opens a stairway. Don't think it would open the way I just did it. In reality, they discovered that you have to move this plug with a connection tied to a cable so that it completes a circuit, then the mirror here causes the tub to lift automatically. This is the escape route.

The marines who had studied "El Chapo" said that his most important weapon, what he had counted on more than money, more than weapons, was time. That's what allowed him to get away on February 17, in the early morning hours in Culiacan, Sinaloa: time.

(Photo of reporter in tunnel)  (Caption: this tunnel is approximately 1.8 miles long and reaches the river. Let's look at it.)  

The tunnel is approximately 1.4 meters in height (4.5 ft. high), and there's places where it gets much narrower. The first stretch of the tunnel is completely wired for electricity. The tunnel connects farther down with the rain drainage system for the city of Culiacan, and from there on, of course, conditions change. This escape route had steel compartment doors, and this is the drainage system for the city of Culiacan.

The escape took approximately 1.8 miles in these conditions. The Marine troops followed his footsteps thanks to an expert tracker who managed to find signs on the tunnel corners and turns that told him they had gone that way, for example, spots where they had sat down to rest. Because the posture is very uncomfortable -- one has to walk bent over --, for a 57 year old man in "Chapo's" condition, that's how it was.

It was 1.8 miles until he got to the river and there the Culiacan plaza boss, whom he had called by phone, picked him up and took him away.

According to authorities, "Chapo" presented lacerations on his shoulders and on his head, the result of that escape. Because a few meters beyond the first part of the tunnel there is no light. He himself told authorities that he did not have a flashlight, that he was bumping things and hurt his shoulders, his head. This is verified in the investigation report.

Eight minutes. That was the head start that the most wanted capo on the planet had on the authorities who wanted to capture him. Eight minutes and a tunnel that connected with the rain drains, a dark labyrinth of clear and dirty water.

The elite team of marines that followed him through the entrails of "Culichi" reported that "El Chapo" and his men, most probably exhausted by the long race in the dark and bent over forward, left stuff behind, first a suitcase with clothing, then some grenades, farther ahead, bulletproof vests, then, finally, at the opening of the drain, right on the Humaya River, a grenade launcher that, had they fired it at their pursuers, would have killed every one of them.

According to the official report, they took advantage of drain openings to call for help with their cell phones.

When they came out of the main drain, a few yards from the Sinaloa Government building, the escape was not finished.

He ran about a quarter of a mile along this dirt road, passed to one side of the National Water Commission offices and stopped in the shade under this tree, where "El Picudo", his plaza boss in Culiacan, picked him up, this according to the testimony of both "El Chapo" and "El Picudo".

The PGR investigation establishes that Manuel Lopez Osorio, "El Picudo", took him to Kilometer 24 on the Culiacan-Mazatlan highway, where he switched cars to one driven by Alejandro "Bravo" Aponte, his security chief  in the area around Culiacan.

"El Chapo" vanished.
Chapo did not resist arrest-his injuries were from slamming into tunnel walls
while escaping two days earlier in Culiacán without light of any source
If he planned his escape for years, if he connected five homes with tunnels to the drainage system, if he bought homes around him for his men, it worked. He bought time. Eight minutes, to be precise. Time in the shape of reinforced doors, hydraulically lifted bath tub, tunnel, walls, partitions, compartment doors. Because of those eight minutes,  he escaped from them.

In the media, it was erroneously reported that authorities had been close to finding Ismael "El Mayo" Zambada, partner and "compadre" of Guzman Loera, the true target.  It took only one day for the members of Operation Gargoyle to regain hope. They arrested "El Picudo". He revealed details about the escape and gave them a new clue: "El Chapo" is in Mazatlan.

On Februry 19, they captured the brothers Kevin Alonso and Karim Elias Gil Acosta, communications operators for the Sinaloa Cartel. They provided the addresses of some of his favorite hideouts. And they kept interrogating Mario Hidalgo Arguello, aka "Nariz".

The first information that the government intelligence agencies received was that he was hiding out in a luxury hotel spa called Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort, north of Mazatlan. On February 21, the guest register at the Miramar building shows the arrival of new guests to Apartment 401. They leased it for three months at 40,000 pesos ($3,077.00). A young man by the name of Allon signed the lease. In reality, he was "Condor", the only man he had left.

A few hours later, at 5:45 a.m., Mazatlan time, on February 22, a hand-picked team of 30 Navy marines, who had arrived one by one from Culiacan so as not to attract attention, parked on the coast highway, entered the Miramar, secured the surrounding areas, placed a guard on an adjacent swimming pool in case the capo decided to escape by jumping from his window, questioned the watchman, broke first into Apartment 602, detained two apparently intoxicated persons, decided they weren't their targets and went down two floors to the fourth floor.

This is building 401 of the Miramar building on the Mazatlan, Sinaloa, coast highway. Inside this place, "Chapo" Guzman was arrested. According to the statements that authorities have given us, they got to this point thanks to their technical capabilities for locating persons.

Once inside, they were going to try to open the door with a key, a lock pick, but through the door they heard, so they tell us, the sound of an AR-15 being cocked. So they decided to bust the door quickly and the first thing they see in the entry room is a man called "Condor", "Chapo" Guzman's chief of security. 

"Condor", according to the narrative, hides behind this door holding a weapon. The marines come in with a bulletproof shield and tell him, "Give up, Condor", and, according to this part of the narrative, he drops the weapon and is immediately apprehended.

A group of six marines go through this hallway in the apartment of  a little over 100 meters square, where there is a wheelchair that, according to the building administrators, was ordered by "El Condor", who gave a false name when he registered, because he said he was going to bring up his grandfather. They don't eliminate the possibility that, as a disguise, they may have used the wheelchair to bring "El Chapo" up here in the elevator.

When they get here, according to what they tell us, the marine team breaks up into three parts. Two men go to this first room where there are two women and the two youngest daughters of the total of 16 children that  "El Chapo" has fathered. The nanny was there, along with the cook that always traveled with "Chapo" wherever he went because they say he likes good food, and here were the two daughters. These two persons are secured.

Two men go through this door, not knowing it was a bathroom; they don't find anything.   

And two men go on to the main bedroom, which is this one. According to the narrative from the Navy marines, they got to this point and saw a woman that was, shall we say, in a sleeping position, awake at 5:45 local time here in Mazatlan, 6:45 Central. She stands up and says there's nobody else, please don't touch her.

Then the marines go into (the room) to search. The closets and the bathroom door were closed, and when they cannot open it completely, that's when they call out to Joaquin Guzman to surrender, who, according to this part of the report, was hiding behind the bathroom door.

It's not until the third time they order him that he agrees to surrender, they bring him down, and that's where they handcuff him and he is secured. According to the report, the operation in the apartment took two minutes, and 17 minutes from the time they entered the building. According to the official report, they twice yelled at him to surrender, but he didn't respond. The third time was louder. Also, they told him the entire building was surrounded. And they called him by his nickname, "Chapo", using "tu" (you), the familiar form of address.

He stuck his head out and pulled it back. He showed his two empty hands and pulled them back again.

The marine trooper told him there might be gunshots. "Give up, Chapo," he yelled at him. The soldier recalls that the capo answered with an "Ok", repeated four times. He showed his body and they subdued him.

The operation took 17 minutes.

They placed all the detainees in armored pickups. "Chapo" and his associate "El Condor" were driven around the block to a dirt football field, where a Blackhawk helicopter flew them to the local airport. From there, a Learjet 60 took them to Mexico City.

An hour and ten minutes of flight time.

Those that traveled with him describe a calm man, respectful, who always responded by referring to his questioners as "boss", charismatic, frank, with a heavy Sinaloa accent accompanied by gestures and facial expressions, but no bad language, in an even voice, who confessed to having killed between 2,000 and 3,000 persons, among them Ramon Arellano Felix, but not Cardinal Posadas.

He said that when he escaped from prison, he hid out in Nayarit and then in his ranch in Badiraguato, Sinaloa. He said that at first, the Beltran Leyvas treated him well, like the chief that he was, but later he found out that they wanted to kill him, that's why they split up.

He told them about a dinner that he had recently with Rafael Caro Quintero, who he said was in the mountains and was not interested in going back into the drug business. They asked him about "El Mayo" Zambada and he told them he was also in the mountains. They asked him about his other partner, Juan Jose Esparragoza, "El Azul", and he answered that he might be in Guadalajara. They asked him about "El Lazca", the former leader of "Los Zetas", and he said he was his enemy, but that he was a gentleman.

They asked him about "La Tuta" and "Los Templarios", and he described them as filthy thieves.

They asked him if he had money and he told them: "I don't have anything, it's a myth of Forbes (magazine)", but they reminded him that they had just seized three watches worth $115,000.00 each, 16 houses and 43 vehicles, 19 of them armored.

When the plane landed in the Federal District International Airport, the news had spread around the world.

Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman Loera was arrested in the bathroom of the main bedroom of an apartment that has a view of the ocean in front, and to the rear, the offices of the local police.

  2. Damn I don't think I've ever read a B B article with such interest, the tunnel escape description was awesome! We'll to be honest I'm not surprised Chapo was captured, I was more surprised when El Lazca was killed by far! That fucker was elusive for sure! The other one I can't wait to be captured is La Tuta. That one is gonna be even better than this one! How long till he gets caught???? Any guesses??? I say 6 months or less. From El Monte, CA. Remember I said 6 months or less! ;)

There's another story that said the marines use some high tech shit to check if everyone was sleep. Another story on CNN said that when the marines stormed inside the room they caught by surprise cooking breakfast. Who knows wtf really happened, All we know is El Picudo is dead meat.

  21. Chivas and all, this is great. Much appreciated from here in the UK.

    Maybe you can help me out with a few things:

    Ok, I am confused. Every single person they apprehended flipped and snitched? It mentions that his 4 trusted guys are ex special forces. The navy arrest them and they are telling them the houses he stays in??? What is going on?

    Are they waterboarding them? Offering them freedom? Witness protection? Tickling them?

    Every single one flipped for seemingly no reason giving away Chapos position. What did they have on these guys? Most were just errand runners, or security. It's hard to put them through a court for being an errand runner.

    More importantly what did Chapo think of this??

    Chapo also could have kept quiet. He probably has not killed anyone directly and it's hard in a court to pin murders on a boss, he simply would have gone to jail for some trafficking charges. Sure he would never get out (unless they let him) but it could have helped his cause in the public sense.

    Anyone inside knowledge here would be great.

    The similarities between how Pablo Escobar lived on the run and how Chapo lived are astonishing. This is clearly the method. Stay low profile, never use a phone, and don't sleep in the same house two nights running.

  23. 12:28, Chapo did not 'do' anything ...

    Needed him gone.

    To get the New York money, into Mexico, they have to project an aura of security and stability.

    Drug running, illiterate, contrabandistas, that are so successful as to get on the Forbes 400, do not send the proper message. Mexico is joining the 'civilize world, that is why Chapo went down, why el Profe Tuta is on the run.

    Powers greater than Mexican Contrabandistas, more powerful than the Mexican governemt, itself, are on the march.

    Walmart and Carlos Slim, there is the future of Mexico, amigo.
    As part of the 'North American Union', as soon the Mexicans get up to standard, when they meet the qualifications of membership, prove they are capable and worthy of a seat at the big table.

    Then the 'real' money flows to the coffers of those that are large and in charge. Those folks, they are not illiterate contrabandistas, from Sinaloa.

    Never have been, never will be.

    Wake up people! The "Kingpin Act" and similar efforts are designed to NOT go to the top of the food chain where the real profiteers from the drug trade sit.

    The politicians, the military, the lawyers and the police are the makers, creators and winners of the illicit drug business. The producers, the smugglers, the sicarios and the innocent public are the loosers!

  47. Thanks for the long translation! Really in-depth and compelling.
    Isn't it interesting how much less glamorous his living conditions are than what we might imagine, and also how his security entourage isn't some small army, but rather just a group of guys on the run, who make mistakes like the rest of us.
    It makes me wonder what the end goal of guys like Chapo are. Was he hoping to retire eventually and find a way to live a life of luxury in which he didn't have to be looking over his shoulder? Did he just enjoy the day-to-day experience of being in power? Did he think that the life of a capo would be easier, and just fail to anticipate all the precautions he'd have to take?
    The article mentions he's a paranoid guy. I wonder if it was all worth it to him?

  66. I really enjoyed reading this translation. Well assembled. I am familiar with the condo building where he was caught and the adjacent neighborhood. I always wonder about that building because mostly in the area are hotels and this as just a plain wall in front, no signs, and a door to enter the property. I stay a lot at the hotel nearby, Los Tabachines. From there I walk to the central bus station on the street behind the condo tower where the cop shop is located. This neighborhood is totally familiar and I would have never guessed it would become such a famous place someday. Nearby is a real good liquor store... I bet he wished Nariz could run and get him some cacahuates y Buchanans 18 jajaja. And, when I saw the video elsewhere the first time I didn't understand why. Now it is clear... they smuggled in el abuelo. What a great story... the story of legends. If not felled in a hail of bullets why not get caught on the run using devices worthy of James Bond.

  70. @10:58 z40 was more 'intense', don't run out of batteries now.
    the intensity of z40 was more like complete contempt against any other mexicans that had not moved up like him and become carwasher in texas, his value as an english speaking connection to texas gangs, due to his brother in jail, was given to him too, his position was earned through snitching on other better qualified candidates, even at the expense of lazca,
    the rebelion in the zeta organization was caused by him too for stealing all the money for his horse ranch, leading the lower members to have to kidnap and extort for the maruchan, many people would rather have chapo than mlguel angel treviño around, even in tamaulipas, now is time to pay the devil's tax, except for the big high ranking businessmen and politicians that really benefit from the drug trade, as from the murders and pestilence they bring to latin-america with their dirty wars, not to fight for freedom , but to steal the present and the future of the latin-americans, for the greater benefit of their imperial aspirations, maybe some day one, at least one big rat politician/narco-businessman comes down, one please, one...

  77. Chapo didn't go out like a rat and if you think he did then you are an idiot. At large for over 13 years isn't easy and if you look at his safe house that's some dope shit. Connected to seven other houses thru tunnels and sewer systems...steel reinforced doors, cameras everywhere, freaking hydraulic operated bathtubs that the marinos wouldn't have found if not left open by chapos ppl when they took off. Also, if you think he should've gone out sshooting and guns blazing, you my friend, dont have kids. He was accompanied by his twin babies, wife and nanny as well as a cook. If he or his bodyguards would've shot a single bullet the mmarinos woulda shot that place up like when they killed Arturo beltran and so his two babies and wife would have been in danger. Chapos was and still is a badass man.. why didnt the marinos try and catch him when he was at his rancho in Sanchez Celis? Cause he had all his ppl with him armed to the teeth and would have put up a fight and probably till the death. Marinos were scared of him too...dont think that causehe ddidn't shoot he is a pussy..he's just a smart man. Now he can run his empire from the comfort of altiplano and have guachitos as bodyguards, again, and drink Buchanan's 18 cuando se le pegue la gana.

Politicians, bankers, insurance companies etc are worse than chapo cause they fuck you over without you having a say in it. With drug capos like him, you can choose not to use drugs. But when politicians make you have to get insurance or writr up some stupid law you have to abide. Bankers stole over 25 billion dollars in the housing market crash and thousands of people lost their home, actually got stolen, by these bankers and loan writers.

  86. FYI,
    I read this on a website after I read this article..

    The Spy Tech That Might Have Kept El Chapo Invisible for So Long
    According to senior law enforcement officials, Guzman used some of the latest counter-surveillance gadgets to keep out of sight. "He didn't spare any expenses when it came to protecting himself," one official told the Associated Press. "It was top-notch."

    Spectrum Analyzer
    Chances are that Guzman wasn't trusting a Wi-Fi password to keep his cyber activity hidden. "There's no way you could make that secure, so more likely, all of his computers were Ethernet connected," Morris said, referring to the hard-wired connection to the Internet. But in the case that someone planted a bug to turn the computer into a surveillance device, Guzman could buy a spectrum analyzer to scan his connections.

    "The spectrum analyzer looks for unknown signal and voltage changes," he said. If the computers are shut down but the analyzer continues to detect a signal, then odds are that the connection has been bugged. "These can run anywhere from $9,000 to $50,000," Morris added, noting that the more expensive analyzers are better at diagnosing the root of the problem.

    Wireless Signal Detector
    The connection itself may be free of bugs, but there's still a chance that that the electronics could be broadcasting unwanted signals. "You can deactivate Wi-Fi on laptops by removing the chips so that it shouldn't be transmitting anything wirelessly," said Morris. If a modified laptop is still producing a signal, then it's been bugged.

    Alternatively, a wireless signal detector can also be used to detect specific frequencies and track cell phones operating on a different cell phone network. "If all your burner cell phones are on the T-Mobile network and you find a [different] CDMA signal, you're going to be able to track it down," said Morris.

    Non-Linear Junction Detector
    Unwanted electronics themselves that don't leave a wireless signal can still be found using a non-linear junction detector. "This is a device that looks like an old metal detector from the '70s," said Morris. The detector works by sending and receiving specialized microwaves.

    "You sweep it across any physical object and when the microwaves bounce back, you find things that shouldn't be there," said Morris. Even if a listening device or audio bug is dead or powered off, the detector will still register a change in the signal.

    Cellular Jammer
    For a drug kingpin like Guzman, having a cellular jammer in his homes and his vehicles would have been de rigueur. "As soon as someone comes onto his property, the cell signal would stop working," said Morris. "It could be used to block cell phones that are acting like audio bugs or transmitting data out."

    Unsurprisingly, the cell jammer is illegal in many countries. "In the United States, only the Secret Service and the [National Security Agency] are allowed to use cell jammers," said Morris. "No one else can have it, including the bomb squads of the New York Police Department, where a cell phone could be used as a triggering device."

  97. @ 3:53 PM

    Great comment! I too, wondered about such a detailed article. How can some reporter get such clean details without interviewing Chapo himself. Chapo is in a Mexican super Max prison right now and only certain military and political personalities have access to him. No damn reporter would be allowed 2 kilometers near him. Interviewing Special Forces is also a non starter. Specials Forces are trained to keep quiet for their personal and their families safety. One doesn't ask Seal Team 6, how they killed Osama Bin Laden. Only official spokes men give out relevant and limited details.

    Televisa... Hmmm... that says alot about the truth and the source. Televisa has been the propaganda machine for the PRI for generations. Twisted truth and outright lies has been Televisa's idea of reporting news. Fox News has been a student of Televisa for 20 years.

    1. I dont believe an actual reporter himself is the source of all this information. Its been quoted on several reputable news websites that the Marine elements that carried out the operation and also transported him have spoken with media outlets about conversations they had with Joaquin. The same happened with Seal team Six.. they've written books about the mission and there's also a movie been made as well. So yeah the marine elements have given out information about the arrest and the man. Also the government itself will also give out information to the media. Of course withholding certain intelligence.

BLAH BLAH BLAH THE MEXICAN GOVERNMENT IS LYING ON HIS MARKS ON HOW THEY ACTUALLY GOT THERE ON HIS FACE, BRUISED MARKS ON HIS CHEST LOOK MORE LIKE THE NAVY SOLDIERS BEAT HIM WITH THE BUTTS OF THEIR GUNS FOUR TIMES!!! LIKE THEY RECITED ON THE OFFICIAL FIRST VERSION ON THE ACCOUNT OF HOW HE WAS CAPTURED. LOOK AT HIS BLOOD SHOT EYES .././MAYBE THEY ARE PROTECTING HIS LAGER THAN LIFE IMAGE, HIS LEGACY (cough) OR FEAR OF WHAT HIS COMRADES AND SONS WOULD DO IF THEY THINK THEY HURT HIM IN THE ARREST. LIES.LIES.LIES. AND NO ONE IS CALLING THEM OUT ON THIS.....

  106. Mexico and EPN are taking way too much credit for this capture. We all know that if it wasn't for American involvement this would not have occurred. EPN is basking in this capture and is being congratulated by his peers and cohorts alike. When you compare the two Chapo is a self made man unlike EPN who had middle class privileges growing up. Chapo in fact has more experience running an organization then EPN and it's my belief a better and more of a natural leader. EPN now wants to dismantle the Sinaloa Cartel with the expectation that w/Chapo's capture the dominoes will fall. The amazing part of the Pacific Cartel is that their leadership structure is comparable to a Fortune 500 company. If Chapo was the CEO, then Mayo is the CIO and El Azul is its CFO. One on them or together will keep the business running. Chapo's capture is a huge hit to the business but this will probably keep them focused for at least the short term while they re-organize and re-structure. EPN should be asked how he plans to combat elements like poverty, lack of opportunity, corruption, racism and lack of education that are rampant throughout Mexico that create environments for Chapo's to grow up and feel marginalized. It's safe to say that Chapo is done with, but his legacy will live forever and EPN cannot with his arrest take that away. Admirers of Chapo will dream big just like he did. There will be many copycats and admirers that will spare no expense to stay ahead of the law. Many and many will fail and a very few will succeed, but the next Chapo will come from the same failed social dynamics that exist in Mexico. Chapo has demonstrated that you can succeed in a life of crime in spite of growing up impoverished and be beloved by some, admired by others and despised by Gov't. Put all these together and they present the perfect ingredients to create another Chapo down the road.

  107. Mr. Guzman is a, in my eyes, a true capo. On top of that, he is a real smart, calculated man. He deserves respect. He did what he had to to survive. Anything negative thing that can be said, can only be countered with admiration for a true professional. You don't have to like what he represents. However, that man deserves respect.

  109. how come the illustrious posters thar answer to their favorite causes of hysteria can not post the time they are trying to attack? it would help us to enjoy their smart intelligence, and pointy barbs...
    so if el chapo killed or had them killed 2 000 to 3 000, and there are about 160 000 to 200 000 or more murdered and disappeared since el chapo escaped from prison, who killed the rest of the crime victims?
    jose fouche, went from a pig farmer before the french revolution to chief of the police, and for a long time fucked up anybody he wanted, after lenin died, the little commissar josef stalin climbed to power, on the shoulder of his close circle, and stayed in power for a long time.
    carlos slim helu, had his brother julian slim helu in the DFS during the terrors the citizens of mexico endured during the dirty wars against the revolutioaries the very same DFS fabricated, torturing and murdering a lot of people, after julian slim helu left, there has been a lot of lebanese agents on the various federal police forces, implicated on car theft rings, even internationa,from the US to mexico, and africa , drug trafficking, kidnapping for ransom, money laundering, also there is congressman darrell issa, lebanese, car thieve, unexplicable enrichment, the lebanese-canadian bank, them lebanese seem to be some of the most greediest jews around, and corruption of any kind is their secret weapon to get where they want to be, and they ain't talking, is there a way to crack the lebanese mafia?

    You're still pushing your discredited "Lebanese" theory again?!

    What little you have to say is downright racist. (You should goggle the word Racist, since you are clueless). You use a few examples of successful politicians and wealth (Not that I'm a fan of Carlos Slim), to indict the entire Lebanese people. Insulting the Lebanese by implying they pulled the strings of the DFS and therefore are responsible for the murders and torture of thousands. "Lebanese mafia", "Greediest Jews around", "Corruption is their secret weapon".

    Instead of using racial profiling and fear, how about using economic analysis with logical facts.

  122. julian slim helu, el comandante olvidado, DFS agent, people were kidnapped by him and his buddies, and disappeared.
    economic analysis and logical facts indicate that nobody gets richer and richer in mexico without buying influence and corrupting their way to the top, all the international investors globalizing everithing in mexico and all over the world are doing it by buying influence, by making laws to make it legal or by corrupting the leaders of the banana republics and all third world "developing" economies, not going too far, the latest millionaire mexican businessman to come and live in the US genaro garcia luna, how can the US accept such a corrupt associate of carlos slim helu in the country? the lebanese maffia is only one of many maffias and cartels, i'd love to know why it incomodates you so much that a humble troll's comment like mine mentions the lebanese, there is the banco santander too, hsbc, chase, scotia, wachovia, all laundering dirty money, and all tending their hand for government handouts, and gone but not forgotten, the canadian and lebanese bank, with the bank of lebanon caught dirty handed, logically if there is corruption there, it is not because i am an idiot, it means that corruption is their way of life, and carlos slim helu is one of the most corrupt af the whole bunch, the mexican harbanos, own a few streets by the national palace and havencome a long way certainly.
    to make you happy, the egiptian community have their heros too, jean succar kuri went from selling pop in sandwich bags on the street to own hotels and restaurants in cancun, how? by selling minors to rich tourists from all over the world, helped by a few mexican government officials, corrupt for sure and for a lot of money, we are all corrupt for sure, but some of us are SUPER CORRUPT, should i go to live on lebanon to know how things really are? i don't think so...
