World’s Most Wanted Cartel Boss

According to CNN, Reuters, and The New York Times, an unnamed senior American law enforcement official. “A Mexican security source confirmed the capture, saying it took place in Mazatlan, a seaside resort in Guzman's northwestern home state of Sinaloa.

Sinaloa drug cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been captured by U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials. He had been on the run since 2001 when he escaped from a Mexican prison. Guzman is considered to be the most powerful drug lord in Mexico and was even named on Forbes magazine’s 2009 list featuring the world’s most powerful people.

The U.S. official also told CNN that Guzman was accompanied by a female when he was arrested and that the bust was part of “a joint operation with Mexican marines and Drug Enforcement Administration authorities overnight.” He said that the operation had been in the works for four or five weeks.

This arrest is a huge coup for law enforcement on both sides of the U.S. – Mexican border. Guzman was on many Most Wanted lists and marks the 25th drug lord to be killed or captured of the 37 most-wanted organized crime leaders announced in 2010.

The city of Chicago branded him the first “Public Enemy No. 1″ since Al Capone, due to Guzman’s influence on the city’s drug market and subsequent street violence. U.S. authorities offered a $5 million reward for information that led to his capture.

Atlanta's Largest Drug Bust

More than $9 million worth of marijuana was seized Monday; it could be the biggest marijuana bust in Atlanta history, according to narcotics officers with decades of experience fighting drugs on the streets.

It was a tip that led to the nearly 6,000 pounds of marijuana. A call came in around 5 p.m. Monday to report a shipment of drugs moving through the city.

“I think we got lucky, to be honest with you, you know? But I'll take luck sometimes any day,” said Deputy Chief Darryl Tolleson, Criminal Investigations Division, Atlanta Police Department.

The 208 bales of marijuana were wrapped in plastic and coated with Chlorine to try and evade K-9 detection.

“Of course we know that that helps, they're trying to throw the dogs off should some dogs come around that particular truck. You guys smelled it, it's a pretty intense smell back there,” said Tolleson.

The Georgia State Patrol worked with Atlanta police to pull over Jose Ibarra, 29, of Houston, as he drove the truck. Ibarra has since been charged with trafficking marijuana and held in the Fulton County Jail without bond. He is scheduled to appear in court at the end of the month.

Drug Dealer's House Gets Raided Live On Facebook

Breon Hollings is currently behind bars on numerous drug-related charges stemming from the Thursday [June 1] bust. Followers of the 22-year-old dealer got to witness the moment drama unfolded for him, as he smiled in celebration of his earnings. Moments into the video it appears as though Hollings heard some kind of noise that prompted him to leave the room to check the front door. But he would return to fan the stack of bills in his hand before his computer camera.

Moments later, he would realize that he wasn't just hearing things, as the sound of police communicating over walkie-talkies/radios began to echo into his room from outside. Then came the sound of broken glass, sending Hollings out to confront the matter as his live stream rolled on. He would never return. Instead, a member of the SWAT team that entered the home showed up to search the room.

Officers reportedly recovered a handgun, ammunition, oxycodone pills, crack cocaine, and drug paraphernalia in the home. He has been charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of cocaine and possession of paraphernalia for the manufacture or delivery of drugs.

Cam’ron Defends Jay-Z's Drug Dealling Days

Cam’ron has come to JAY-Z’s defense after comedian Faizon Love accused Hov of “fake dope-dealing” in a recent episode of the Hip-Hop Uncensored podcast.

JAY-Z’s oeuvre engages heavily with his drug-dealing past and he rose to prominence thanks in part to an unflinching depiction of selling cocaine in his youth. Faizon, however, recently suggested that JAY had embellished his history. “I like Jay-Z. I like him as a guy and the whole thing he created about this fake dope-dealing” he said, “That’s when I stopped liking him. This nigga ain’t sold no cocaine in his life—I don’t think he’s ever won a fight.”
