DEA: Had no prior knowledge of Chapo's escape tunnel, releases new wanted poster

By Lucio R for Borderland Beat

As it turns out, those reports of the DEA agency forewarning Mexico of El Chapo’s escape plans were not accurate.

At a presser Wednesday to announce the new Chapo tipline, wanted posted and reward, DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg told reporters that the United States did not have any actionable intelligence of the Sinaloa Capo building a tunnel.  However, he went on to affirm that the agency believes Chapo did indeed use the tunnel to escape.

Most experts of Mexican organized crime agree with Rosenberg.  For El Chapo to walk out the Altiplano Max security prison through the front gates would require a conspiracy with the involvement of a massive amount of individuals.  The more people involved the greater risk of a compromise or break in the chain of confidentiality.  El Chapo is many things but an inept strategist is not one of them.  Having a core group of people paid or threatened into facilitating the tunnel escape, was really the most secure method of escape.  And his drug tunnel engineering is a technique El Chapo was very familiar with and whose sophistication he had acquired fame for. 

Rosenberg said when he heard about the escape his reaction was "a combination of extreme disappointment and not terribly surprised. I mean, it had happened before, right? So fool me once, shame on you… I think I have that right …fool me twice, shame on me." A reference to Mexico having dirtied its hands with two Chapo escapes, the previous escape from a Jalisco prison in 2001, and the July escape from Altiplano.  El Chapo now being the first to escape from Altiplano, Mexico’s only internationally recognized Super Max Prison.

While Reforma, a reputable media outlet in Mexico, reports in today’s issue, that the DEA announced it is working with Mexico to capture Chapo, implying they are working side by side, that is not quite what Rosenberg stated. 

Mexico had already said “no thank you” to the U.S. offer of assistance, notably offering technology help.  It was U.S. technology that tracked and found El Chapo in his February, 2014 capture.


Rosenberg said he has confidence in some U.S. sources within Mexico, however, he accepted that there are some elements within that government that may be working against the U.S.

He stated that The United States will continue its offer of manpower and sharing information with the Mexican government in the hunt for Guzman.

The agency released its new “wanted” poster (above) a tip line number, the tip line number in the United States is (844) 692-4101 and outside the U.S. the number is 001-844-692-4101, and reiterated the $5.000.000 dollar reward on Chapo’s head.

Also announced was a new tip line email address; CHAPOTIPS@USDOJ.GOV.

Rosenberg acknowledges that El Chapo’s influence and lore in Mexico is a foe the agency fights against in acquiring good information that would help in his capture.  He says the agency believes Chapo is in Mexico where he has good control and the most protection. Mexican mews outlets report Rosenberg stated Chapo is in Sinaloa, while that is a reasonable deduction, what Rosenberg stated was Chapo is in Mexico, and not outside the country

The U.S. quickly filed a wanted warrant with Interpol, should El Chapo decides to travel outside Mexico’s borders.

“Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman-Loera has destroyed lives and communities throughout the United States and Mexico and his capture is a high priority for DEA,” said Acting Administrator Chuck Rosenberg.  “His escape poses a danger to the safety and security of both our countries.  DEA will continue to work closely with our Mexican counterparts and provide as many resources as possible to ensure his arrest.”

Information from the DEA press announcement:

“On July 11, 2015, he again escaped from Altiplano federal maximum security prison in the State of Mexico.

Guzman-Loera was in charge of the Guzman-Loera drug trafficking organization (DTO), which in turn, is part of the larger Sinaloa Cartel. Under the leadership of Guzman-Loera and his partner, Ismael Zambada-Garcia, the Sinaloa Cartel controls vast trafficking operations on an international scale, with the majority of its drugs being distributed to the United States. The Sinaloa Cartel bases its operations principally in the Mexican states of Sinaloa, Sonora, Durango and Baja California, although it also has representation in several other states throughout the Republic. In addition to its distribution cells in the United States, the DTO transports drug shipments to Canada, Australia, Europe, Africa and Asia. 

Their organization smuggles multi-ton cocaine shipments from South America through Central America into Mexico. They are also involved in the manufacture, transport and distribution of methamphetamine and heroin. Additionally, the organization operates several large scale marijuana plantations in Sinaloa and surrounding areas. The Sinaloa Cartel organization relies on bulk currency shipments to move drug proceeds across the United States-Mexico border.


Guzman-Loera has been charged with drug trafficking and related crimes in several U.S. District Courts, to include the District of Arizona, the Southern District of California, the Western District of Texas, the Northern District of Illinois, the Eastern District of New York, and the Southern District of Florida. The first U.S. indictment against Guzman-Loera was unsealed in San Diego on September 28, 1995, charging him and 22 members of his organization with conspiracy to import over eight tons of cocaine and money laundering.”

    8. Chapo has a habit of putting curfews on people that live on his turf! He tells them at what time at night they have to be home and off the street, and even when they can throw parties celebrating any special occasion! Gente Nueva executed nine youth baseball players in the Juarez Valley about a year and half ago because they celebrated a victory in broad daylight without their permission. Do you think this is the first or the last time innocent people have been killed by Chapos people simply because of this rule of his? Hell No!!! Im even willing to bet their could be hundreds or thousands of innocent people killed by this bastard for similar innocent reasons! Fuck this mentality and fuck El Chapo! Who the fuck does he think he is?!!!

  4. That is correct. They distanced themselves from the United States media saying they warned Mexico. They offered some radio intelligence but it stated nothing specific, it was a matter of adding up information and movement of money. They gave Mexico nothing specific. there is limited cell capability and communication for 2 miles around the prison.

    Rosenberg said without specifically stating, that with Mexico on board they could recapture Chapo, but left little doubt they doubt Mexico would go on board.

      I agree. We should not go into the countries where men, women and children are being slaughtered, tortured, decapitated, raped and more. Where nobody can do anything to help. Kind of sounds like where I live in Mexico.

      Why did we get involved in fighting against Germany. I guess we should have let them slaughter more Jews, and then who they did not like next.

      Saddam Hussein wiping out whole villages (Kurds) with chemical warfare and killing the people he did not like or just to change his personal security out. Two million people killed by the Khmer Rouge. Just slaughtered men, women and children.

      The only lives they are trying to ruin is the thugs, criminals and terrorists. You think the people in those countries should live under that kind of leadership. Look at North Korea where people are suffering.

      Most of these fights are to fend off bad people that want to do harm to others for greed and power. The people that complain about the US are the ones that say the US is doing nothing. When the shot hits the fan they want help, just like the people that are being attacked by terrorists now. The only thing I would do differently is make them pay for the wars we are helping them fight for them.

      What happens when things get bad. The people want to escape for another country and many of them to the USA. More than any country in the world as in evidence. People do not want to escape to North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Cuba, Mexico, Russia and many others. They want to escape to the the more civil, although not perfect countries. Right now I see the US is trying to save lives, and many of the more persecuted countries and people are wondering why the USA is not helping even more. Let them foot the bill, and the take the money from the people they conquer to pay for the damages they did. Because none of it benefits the people in the USA, other than to be more secure in a crazy world.

    3. The USA picks up chatter to weed out terrorists. They have spying equipment and communications that can pick up the smallest of chatter. If you live in the mountains you have to contact people to do things by phone or other types of communication that can easily be heard. Look at all the things that were found out with Snow. If the US put out a full blown search with all the technology they have at hand, he would be found. There has to be a string of communications to get things done and he would be found. They found him other times only to have Mexican officials tip him off. If you thing they could not find him you are not to up on the incredible tech and in communications and satellites that can see a persons face up close. Now they also have drones. He enjoys to spend his money and he makes things happen. That would bring him down. They could go and pick him up after he was secured by ground personnel that secured him before hand.

    2. Tobacco is legal and does not need to be smuggled into any country. Just like beer is legal and does not have to be smuggled anywhere. Kind of a lame statement. Mexico wants to produce more tobacco but they are not very good at it. They do produce sufficient quantities for their own consumers here in Mexico. With the current income in Mexico it would be hard to pay for cigarettes and beer, which would be the first choice here on a limited budget.

      Here are the countries that produce the most tobbaco.

      Country Production (Metric tonnes) Percentage of World Total

      1 China 2,079,950 mt 36.4%
      2 India 592,000 mt 10.3%
      3 Brazil 551,250 mt 9.6%
      4 United States 358,363 mt 6.2%
      5 Malawi 124,301 mt 2.1%

      The USA is just 6.2 % of the total production in the world. Better get your facts straight Tony.

      If you think the the USA is forcing Mexicans to smoke cigarettes you need to read this link.

One thing about tobacco compared to the crap this site talks about, drugs can cause people to kill other people for money and quick fixes. No one is running around beheading and robbing people for a cigarette. You are so off the record. As far as Mr. Percentage on the tobacco production. Have you looked at the income. The quality of China and the other countries are poor. US has a better tobacco quality as well as sells internationally.However beer in other countries like Germany is higher proof. Takes less to get drunk. Yet cost much more.

    5. And if my facts aren't straight....? Tobacco is a legal drug. One of the most addicting if not the most addicting. Kills millions worldwide. USA taxes and profits from this drug. Lots of children get hooked but die much later from this legal drug. Take that Marlboro man. T.M.

That means if caught in any country other than Mexico, the US has first dibs despite what any of you cheerleaders in Mexico say.
