Chicago Names Mexican Drug Lord "Public Enemy Number One"

Just like Capone


The city of Chicago has named its first public enemy number one since Al Capone—a drug cartel leader who lives in a mountain hideaway in western Mexico.

Joaquin Guzman is the leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, which is suspected by federal agents to supply the bulk of narcotics sold in Chicago.

The Chicago Crime Commission has named other public enemies, but the 1930s gangster was the only prior number one.

The US has offered a $5m reward for Guzman's capture
