DEA Statement on the Capture of Chapo Guzman

"The capture of Joaquin 'Chapo' Guzman-Loera is a victory for the rule of law and the Mexican people and government.  The arrest is a significant achievement in our shared fight against transnational organized crime, violence, and drug trafficking.  It is further evidence of our two countries’ resolve to ensure justice is served for families who have been plagued by Guzman-Loera’s ruthless acts of violence. The DEA and Mexico have a strong partnership and we will continue to support Mexico in its efforts to improve security for its citizens and continue to work together to respond to the evolving threats posed by transnational criminal organizations."
