Drones Used to Search for “El Chapo”

As part of the hunt for drug lord Joaquín” El Chapo “Guzmán, the US government made available the use of drones to Mexican authorities, so they can physically locate the head of the Sinaloa Cartel.

They explain that with this “state of the art” technology law enforcement agencies seek to detect the capo for his physical features, and once he is located, the system will automatically send an alert to the proper  authorities in both countries.

Technology is being used just as in the operation carried out in Mazatlan, Sinaloa on February 2014, when Guzman was arrested without firing one single shot, back then, he was found using a voice detector.

Since his escape more than five weeks ago, the search with drones has been unsuccessful, and some researchers strengthen the hypothesis that ‘El Chapo’ might be hidden in an underground bunker.

Nevertheless, American Law Enforcement authorities delcared that they have “the necessary technology and equipment to locate him wherever he is”.
