(TheConservativeNews.org) – The house El Chapo, a former leader in the Sinaloa Cartel and former drug lord, lays waiting for a new owner as its old one serves his prison sentence. In any event, the $183,000 property isn’t for sale. Instead, the Mexican government is raffling the house off in a lottery.
The property served as a safehouse and has failed to sell at auctions in the past. The former safehouse was one of 20 properties the government confiscated and gave away in a lottery during Mexico’s Independence Day, September 16.
Of course, it isn’t the nicest property. The 2,800-square-foot home has low ceilings and bars on the windows, but it’s in the quiet neighborhood of Culiacán and has a $183K value. El Chapo used the two-bedroom house as a hideout and even escaped authorities via a tunnel under the bathtub, which the government covered with a concrete slab and new tile.
The person, who remains unidentified, won the home on Thursday, September 16, with raffle ticket number 1,438,619. All proceeds from the raffle will go to residents who participated in the Tokyo Olympic games.
