Video: Chapo's Culiacán Escape Tunnels

Chivis Martínez for Borderland Beat

Below is a video released by the Mexican government depicting the subterranean tunnel system discovered in Culiacán, on the 19th,  in a near miss capture of Chapo Guzman.  The tunnels linked seven homes together underground, in a network of tunnels, stairs and storm drains. 
 
The utilization of storm drains provided an exhaust system for the underground system that was used for the  transportation of  people and contraband to the structures above.  Above structures were built as homes but were used both for housing and warehousing. 
 
It was at the home of Chapo's former wife, Griselda Lopez Perez, that authorities executed a raid, and a near miss of capturing Chapo.  Heavy steel doors delayed entry to the home and allowed enough time for the Sinaloa Cartel leader to escape.  In his rush, a bathtub  escape hatch was left askew, drawing the attention of the Mexican navy at the scene.  It was then they opened the lid and discovered stairs leading to the underground system. 
 
Chapo is known for his genius in designing and constructing subterranean tunnels and labs. 
 
In 2013, his former wife Griselda, made a media tour after being placed on the Chapo kingpin list by the United States.  She was indignant and professed the innocence of herself and that of her children. Lopez declared she knew nothing of Chapo or his whereabouts and had not seen him for years.

  3. Some media might be giving out too much information, for instance on CNN:

    "Mexican authorities picked up Mario Hidalgo Arguello, a courier who flipped during questioning, the officials said. He told interrogators about a series of safe houses, they said, each with reinforced steel doors and escape hatches that led to tunnels."

    This guy's family might be good people who didn't want anything to do with his lifestyle and by the media printing stuff like this, it puts them in danger for his actions. Maybe they were complicit and knew what they were getting themselves into. either way, the media should find that out before putting them in harms way. You all know what them Zetas did to the family of the marine killed during the barbas shootout.

  4. Mexico needs to develop a few SuperMax prisons, such as the US ADF Florence. Put these criminals in there to rot, without any form of communication with the outside world, and keep the ID of the people who work there anonymous. See if they can run their empires from the dungeon....!

    to get chapo.

      Yes, while the cops took 'forever' to bash through the steel door Chapo wasn't fast enough to run to his AK-47 mahogany cabinet, find the key to safely unlock it, open a box of bullets or whatever AK-47s take, load it, relock the decorative gun cabinet (cause he's all about safety) before the cops made entry lol

  17. Mexico is patting itself on the back for getting El Chapo. Some in the international press are praising Peña-Nieto again. But, let's look at reality:

    1. He was caught using US/DEA intelligence.

    2. The DEA will only work with the Mexican Navy, because everyone knows the Mexican Army is corrupt.

    3. The US is calling for El Chapo's immediate extradition, because they know he'd be out of a Mexican prison in no time.

    And Mexico is proud of this?!?!

    1. So the US should be proud? Proud of having a border so porous that tons of illegal narcotics cross every year and thousands of immigrants as well. Proud that they are the biggest consumer of drugs in the world? Proud that they sent hundreds of firearms and millions of rounds of ammo to mexico to fuel the war? Well, my friend, let me pat the US in the back for a job well done ttakin down a man they themselves created and always knew where he was.

    My god,,a lot of people actually believed this kind of shit?I always said also that the forbes list is another load of bullshit,,people believing all kinds of ridiculous claims,,here is the reality as was the case with Lazca,40,and a lot of others.There are a whole lot of families and associates who are under the so-called CDS,but they are loosely allied and mostly autonomous, Cabrera,Salazar,and many many others who do their own thing,but are aligned under the CDS"banner"we would all be amazed at how many families make this thing run

  19. "I hope pena nieto get killed like fucking dog for doing this"

    I hope gets a statute in front of Los Pinos for doing this, as I'm sure all the innocent victims of the drug war do too. Chapos greed led to the deaths of many innocent civilians in Juarez and TJ. You are going to miss out on how wonderful life can be if you live it right and work hard, even in Mexico. The only ones who can't move up in the world by working hard, have limited intelligence or live in the Sudan, or Syria. Even the untouchables of India are moving up in the world. grow up ,get a job, and work to better the world, not destroy it.

  28. The real criminals of Mexico are the politicians and things will never change as long as they kowtow to the US. Its hilarious how they take credit for everything when in reality if it wasn't for Gringo help Chapo would still be on the LAM. Now I like to live in a civilized society but when the power brokers of a country are the true criminals who neglect basic necessity's of their people it's hard to support a regime like that. Believe me the US can improve in many areas but compared to Mexico its like comparing night and day in terms of feeling safe and protected. The real question is how does this capture change the narco culture of Sinaloa? It doesn't, marginalized plebes will still have a distrust gov't along with a bravado instinct. The next Chapo is probably right now a young adolescent tending to his first crop and his DEA counterpart is in Junior High somewhere.

  32. Shorty did it BIG. It may be over, but he went large. It also may not be over. The real crime is the drug war across the globe that lead to all the violence in the first place. Of course someone was going to capitalize on it just like Bill Gates capitalized on computers. Just end the drug war and problem solved. Its just that easy. Drugs are awesome. People really like them. Its very clear. Why put people in jail for something that lots of people really like? That's the real crime here. Fuck the DEA, fuck the NSA, and while we are at it fuck Obama too.

  36. the military/ex-military paramilitary is just extending the state of exception that while unofficial, is already in place all over mexico, giving them impunity, they will throw some leaders to the wolves, but the bigwigs will never get caught, to keep them aligned with the pri powers that are stealing away what is left over of the state nation, and selling most of it for peanuts to their secret bank accounts in other countries, the US will not officially take over any latin-american countries, it only wants the natural resources, and a peaceful bunch of underpaid slaves to deliver to the real bosses of their politicians that command their US mercenaries for economic conquest purposes, all over the world.
    look forward to the mexican military to expand zeta style murders all over the pacific coast and continued drug trafficking by their paramilitary friends and sicarios.
    lazca was just a necessary idiot and a fool fucked up by his judas friend, now both are out of the way, but trafficking, kidnapping and murdering keeps up and up, while the politicians satraps keep stealing and stealing, and selling the americans and latin-americans asses away, it is not only obama, FOOL !!! it is the privatizers of government services forcing the US government to give them their juicy contracts to steal billions and billions of dollars that the people of the US has to borrow and pay for, and who promote and protect drug trafficking and money laundering to enhance their revenue that sends 90% of the profits to foreign untouchable banks...

  37. To all the boneheads that are shocked that he did not have his "300 bodyguards" with him and was caught without a shot fired. How about thinking for one minute before you open your trap.

    Wanted masterminds don't want to bring attention to themselves by having 300 armed sicarios invited to the playa. Can you see him rolling into town with a parade of 20 SUVs. Taking over a section of the beach by demanding people to get out? Hiring a live band, and giving out free bottles of tequila.

    Oh wait... that did happen in Mazatlan a while back. Only that time the local politicians were invited. Lets start arresting these narco politicians too!!!

  42. @2:26 what we call the hindu, from india are gentle people.
    --fully indoctrinated by traditions into obeying the boss no matter what.
    --not everybody has the genital, i mean genetic disposition to be gunga dins.
    --most mexicans would do something crazy, be mandingo or rambo, if only there was access to weapons and leadership.
    --that can't be, so most of us leave as soon as possible
    --that has left behind breeds of desperate for a buck people, that must make a living off the tamed people left behind by the mexican government.
    --the mexican government that supported by foreign powers and money keeps sticking it to the remaining mexicans in complicity with police and military and "global" investors.
    -your moralistic preachings to us mexicans about life or how to live come from the school that assigns blame to the poor for being poor and to the ignorant for being ignorant, and believes that the rich are really all deserving because they are rich.
    --the bad news for you is that there are evil people on the world that do not partake of that point of view being born everyday, life goes on, maybe the future will be different, when we are gone, at the present time we can anly thank Al Gore and co. for inventing the internet that makes so much information available to us, but which is under assault of the chinese army trying to control what can be said or not...
