El Chompo the alligator has recently been found guarding drugs and money for drug dealers.
The alligator was found by police in a Pennsylvania drug home guarding a collection of heroin, suspected fentanyl, crack cocaine, marijuana and around $5,000 in cash.
According to NBC, authorities named the alligator after the infamous drug lord El Chapo before taking it to the Brandywine Zoo for quarantine.
Joaquin Guzmán, who is also known as El Chapo the drug lord, was once one of the richest people in the world and was listed on Forbes’ rich list in 2009.
The drug lord is alleged to have overseen the exportation of hundreds of tonnes of cocaine into the US and ordered hundreds of assassinations.
Beside his well-known involvement in drug-trafficking, the trail has exposed much more horrific truth about his life.
Court papers released last February accused him of drugging and raping girls as young as 13-years-old.
According to the BBC, a former associate of El Chapo, Alex Cifuentes said, “Guzmán called the youngest of the girls his ‘vitamins’ because he believed that sexual activity with young girls gave him ‘life’.”
Cifuentes also alleged that Guzmán gave former Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto, a $100 million bribe.
Cifuentes claimed that Mr. Peña Nieto contacted Guzmán after he took office in 2012 and said he would end a manhunt against him in return for $250m. Mr. Peña Nieto has not yet commented regarding the accusations.
During the trial, the court heard how Guzmán managed to escape from maximum-security Altiplano prison.
A GPS watch was smuggled through to Guzmán’s cell and his sons bought a property on the periphery of the prison. From this point, diggers crafted a tunnel to his cell and he escaped using an adapted motorcycle.
Guzmán is the most high-profile drug trafficker to be trialed in the US. Jurors for the trail were anonymous and provided with armed escorts, as prosecutors argued that Guzmán had a reputation for intimidating and even killing witnesses.
