El Chapo's son, Ovidio Guzmán, had an Anti-Aircraft Gun found in his bedroom before arrest.

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that El Chapo's son had an Anti-Aircraft Gun found in his bedroom before arrest.

Ovidio Guzmán, one of the sons of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán who was captured earlier this month in a gunfight between hundreds of his henchmen and the Mexican army, was ready for war. 

“Inside Ovidio Guzmán’s bedroom alone, we found 47 weapons, including some very high-power weapons and anti-aircraft guns. These types of guns can’t be sold at any store, so we are finding out who sold them [to Guzmán],” Mexico’s Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said during a congress meeting on Monday. Guzmán was captured by the Mexican army on Jan. 5 in the small town of Jesús María, 40 kilometers north of Culiacán, Sinaloa, after a gunfight that lasted for more than 10 hours and left at least 29 people dead, according to official and local residents versions. 

The minister pointed specifically to ten U.S. counties, mostly in Texas and Arizona, as the main places from where guns seized in Mexico were traced back to: Maricopa and Pima in Arizona; Harris, Dallas, El Paso, Bexar and Orange in Texas; Hartford in Connecticut; Hampden in Massachusetts; and Los Angeles in California. 

Guzmán’s capture prompted a violent response from hundreds of his henchmen, who mounted highway blockades setting vehicles on fire and even shot at several airplanes departing from the local airport, according to news reports. The three of “Los Chapitos” who remain at large are Iván Archivaldo, Jesús Alfredo, and Joaquín, currently share control of the SInaloa Cartel with other factions, one headed by Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, one of the original founders of the organization, and another by Aureliano Guzmán, also known as “El Guano”, who is El Chapo’s brother.

Passenger David Tellez said one of his young children spotted military aircraft touching down alongside their Aeromexico jet early on Thursday, Reuters reported, when the sound of gunfire suddenly rang out.

“As we were accelerating for take-off, we heard gunshots very close to the plane and that's when we all threw ourselves to the floor,” said Mr Tellez after the incident in the northern city of Culiacan.

A reporter with US news outlet ABC said at least one bullet hit the fuselage after the arrest of Mr Guzman and a senior member of the Sinaloa cartel.

The Culiacan airport closed shortly after the incident.

Burned vehicles could be seen across the city as security forces patrolled the city attempting to contain the violent backlash, Reuters said.

Mr Tellez, 42, was travelling with his wife and children aged seven, four and one after spending Christmas with family. He told Reuters he had reached the airport for an 8.24am flight without incident, despite encountering road blockades set up after overnight shoot-outs.

Although Mr Guzman's arrest had not yet been confirmed, nervous security guards urged travellers to enter quickly.

“Authorities were not saying anything,” he said by phone.

Mr Tellez hid in an airport bathroom with his family after hearing that gang members were in the airport. The rumour turned out to be false and the Aeromexico travellers boarded quickly.

Yet, just as flight AM165 to Mexico City was about to take off, a succession of military planes landed on the airstrip.
