How to Become a Bounty Hunter

Al Capone an “Amateur” Compared to the FBI’s New “Public Enemy Number One”

The head of a criminal enterprise in Chicago is far more violent and dangerous than mob boss Al Capone ever was, according to the FBI.

To capture the elusive, vicious Joaquin Guzman Loera, the FBI said it has joined forces with the Chicago Police Department, naming Joaquin Guzman Loera “Public Enemy Number One.”

“Not since the Chicago Crime Commission’s first “Public Enemy Number One” has any criminal deserved this title more than Joaquin Guzman Loera,” said J.R. Davis, President and Chairman of the Chicago Crime Commission. “Compared to Guzman, Al Capone looks like an amateur. Guzman is currently heading the largest and most powerful crime organization in Mexico.”

Davis said Lorea’s group – the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico – is the major supplier of narcotics in Chicago.

“His agents are working in the Chicago area importing vast quantities of drugs for sale throughout the Chicago region and collecting and sending to Mexico tens of millions of dollars in drug money,” Davis said.

BADIRAGUATO, Mexico — As a child, Joaquín Guzmán Loera was so poor that he sold oranges to scrape together money for a meal. Since then, the 52-year-old has built a business empire and a personal fortune currently tied for number 701 on Forbes magazine’s list of global titans.

He also has another ranking: Mexico’s most wanted man.

Mr. Guzmán is the informal CEO of one of the world’s biggest drug-trafficking organizations, the so-called Sinaloa cartel, named for its home state of Sinaloa.

It smuggles a big part of the marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamines that end up on American streets, and it has links to organized crime in 23 countries, according to Mexican and U.S. officials.
