[PHOTOS] Busted: Check out what was under this Drug King Pins bathtub

For 13 years, Mexico’s most powerful drug kingpin  lived on the run, staying well ahead of authorities. But it was one slip-up — an associate of his being caught on a wiretap — that led to his capture on Feb. 22.

Guzman had a penchant for high-tech gadgetry to keep ahead of authorities, as AP reported on Wednesday. He utilized sophisticated communications equipment and scanners to detect surveillance. But it was his last ditch low-tech underground tunnel that helped him almost get away again.
With Mexican Marines surrounding his house, temporarily hampered by a steel-reinforced door, Guzman fled through a secret door beneath a bathtub into his tunnel network.
Making it safely through the labryinth of tunnels, Guzman fled south to Mazatlan. Unfortunately for him, Mexican Marines and U.S. DEA agents had set up a base of operations in the city, according to AP.

Early on Saturday morning, Feb. 22, Marines had located him in a condominum complex and surrounded the area. Before sunrise at 6:40 a.m., Marines smashed open the door to his fourth floor condo, seizing Guzman without a single shot fired.

With the Marines as guides, Reuters photographer Daniel Becerril shows us what the Mexican drug lord escape tunnel looks like:

I’ve heard of these before but seeing the images brings a whole new perspective to the stories. This Mexican drug lord escape tunnel is something right out of a Hollywood movie.
