We hid El Chapo's drugs in NYC's “best neighborhoods”

A Chicago-born drug trafficker who moved cocaine and heroin throughout the United States to Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman told Tuesday that he kept a rowdy stash house in New York City – and even had one overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge. I would choose the best neighborhoods, said Pedro Flores when choosing the places he would hide 38 tons of cocaine he moved through the big cities. "We tried to minimize contact with law enforcement." Flores, who, with his identical twin brother, ran drugs for El Chapo from 2005 to 2008, said that the neighbors in black areas were also better, as they were more likely to warn the police if someone sneaked around. He told jurors that he never allowed his workers to tell where the home was, but a woman said he called him and said "she looked out the window and had a beautiful view of the Brooklyn Bridge." The location of the stash house was no longer revealed. Flores and twins, Margarito, netted $ 227 million for El Chapo's Sinaloa Cartel. They worked as a team and were often simply called the "twins". His testimony Tuesday was the first time Flores had been publicly seen in four years. Flores earns a 1 4-year prison sentence after he and his brother turned to the Drug Administration 2008. He has had a few chicks while sitting behind bars – mostly with his wife.

A Chicago-born drug trafficker who moved cocaine and heroin throughout the United States to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman told Tuesday that he kept a rowdy stash house in New York City – and even had one overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge.

I would choose the best neighborhoods, said Pedro Flores when choosing the places he would hide 38 tons of cocaine he moved through the big cities. “We tried to minimize contact with law enforcement.”

Flores, who, with his identical twin brother, ran drugs for El Chapo from 2005 to 2008, said that the neighbors in black areas were also better, as they were more likely to warn the police if someone sneaked around.

He told jurors that he never allowed his workers to tell where the home was, but a woman said he called him and said “she looked out the window and had a beautiful view of the Brooklyn Bridge.”

The location of the stash house was no longer revealed.

Flores and twins, Margarito, netted $ 227 million for El Chapo’s Sinaloa Cartel. They worked as a team and were often simply called the “twins”.

His testimony Tuesday was the first time Flores had been publicly seen in four years.

Flores earns a 1

4-year prison sentence after he and his brother turned to the Drug Administration 2008.

He has had a few chicks while sitting behind bars – mostly with his wife.

“I could sneak on the toilet and make her pregnant,” Antoine Flores said. He also copped to pay a companion hanging two signs outside the prison for his loved one, even though an objection was held before their message was revealed.

“I only have difficulty following the rules, I guess,” he said.

Even before he went to prison, the lovesick drug smuggler dropped off his wife, who is the daughter of a high-class Chicago police. Flores testified that he bought her 200 million Bentley just before he went to prison – even though the latter was arrested by DEA.

He claimed to have been involved because a war had broken between Sinaloa Cartel and its rivals, and he feared for his and his family’s life.

It was not the first time he testified that he had been kidnapped in 2004.

“I thought I would die,” he said of the difficult experience during which he was removed, starved and tied while locked in a cell for 16 days. He was dumped in the desert after his brother intervened and forced to go miles in the dark when wild cats screamed around him.

Flores first met Chapo shortly after May 2005 and witnessed a flight to the mountains and a rough ride up a long driveway – where he saw a naked man chained to a tree “looking down on us.”

The leafy king’s tip was not particularly impressed with Flores, he reminded and said that Chapo immediately encountered his jeans and jewelry.

“With all the money, could not I afford the rest of the pants?” said the witness the doctor asked, which prompted laughter from the jury members. Chapo also aimed at the chain around his throat and said that “the only thing missing was a dress”.

During the meeting they discussed his kidnapping, and Chapo had allegedly offered to trick out his kidnapper. But only, Flores testified if he agreed to “shoot him once in each eye.” Flores declined.

In December 2015 his own father was kidnapped and Flores said he sought advice from Chapo. This time he brought a gift to a sharp cartel king.

“Jean shorts”, he logged. “In a Viagra box.”

Before joining Chapo, Flores drove cocaine, heroin and meth over Chicago and to other major metropolises, including Washington, DC and Minneapolis.

Chapo turns to life behind the bars if they were convicted.
