police have been tipped off that he could be in southern Argentina, according to an Argentine newspaper in Patagonia, El Cordillerano. The paper reported that local people said Chapo had been seen in a sweet shop – a remarkable claim, given his notoriety. The authorities are said to be looking for two cars and a 4×4 vehicle. “We received information that El Chapo tried to cross the Chilean/Argentine border,” said Sergio Berni, the Argentine security chief. “In line with protocol, we have activated all security mechanisms and have put the men and women of our federal forces in Patagonia on maximum alert.” The southern Andes would not be a bad place for Guzman to hide, given its sparce population and distance from large cities. Furthermore, the world’s most wanted drugs lord is known to have connections in Argentina. Read Article
