Mexico’s top drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera has reclaimed his spot on Chicago’s Public Enemy No. 1 list, according to NBC Chicago. The Chicago Crime Commission reportedly suspended the title after Chapo was arrested in 2014.
Chapo was first named Public Enemy No. 1 in 2013 for his role in Chicago’s drug trade, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
The only other criminal to hold this title was mob boss Al Capone in 1930.
This announcement comes days after El Chapo escaped from a maximum-security prison outside Mexico City, according to The AP.
El Chapo, who headed the notorious Sinaloa Cartel, was last seen Saturday before 9 p.m. Authorities reportedly conducted a search around the surrounding area and highways. Flights were also suspended at Toluca airport near the penitentiary.
The 57-year-old drug lord was arrested in Mexico City in February 2014. Guzman was taken without incident in a U.S.-backed Mexican raid on a condominium tower in Mazatlan, Mexico, according to the New York Times.
Jack Riley, the head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration In Chicago, wanted drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera to stand trial in the Windy City.
“I think we have the strongest case,” Riley said, according to the Sun Times. “I fully intend for us to have him tried here.”
Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Chicago wiould be “ready” if the federal government wanted to try El Chapo in his city, according to the Sun Times.
Chicago will be up against New York for the honors of trying el Chapo.
El Chapo faces multiple federal drug trafficking indictments in several states in the U.S., according to Forbes. Bob Nardoza, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office for the Eastern District of New York, said American authorities plan to seek the extradition of El Chapo.
El Chapo is alleged to be the billionaire criminal mastermind behind the notorious Sinaloa Drug Cartel that has funneled the streets of Chicago with 80 percent of the h-----, c------, marijuana and methamphetamine, according U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration as reported by Business Insider. The drugs have a street value of $3 billion.
El Chapo is legendary figure amongst trap rappers in Hip Hop.
Chief Keef romanticized a life as a crime boss in song “Peep Hole” where he name-drops El Chapo, rapping, “I rather have my ‘migos, three zero, zero/I think I’m El Chapo, boy you worth a kilo/I’m coolin’ wit my vatos, cuz they speak my lingo.”
Harold “Noonie G” Ward, a former high-ranking member of the Gangster Disciples in Chicago, attributed much of the violence to the drug trade.
Violent crimes occur in the city is due to turf wars amongst African American and Latino gangs over the sale of drugs.
“They’re bringing them in, they sell it, Noonie told Bretibart’s Rebel Pundit. “From Mexico to Chicago, they make $3.5 billion. Majority of the violence in Chicago come from the Mexican cartel.”
