The Associated Press confirmed on Saturday morning that the head of Mexico's Sinoloa Cartel Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was captured overnight by U.S. and Mexican authorities at a hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico.

A high ranking U.S. law enforcement official confirmed Guzman's arrest in the beach town resort. The official was not authorized to discuss the arrest and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Guzman faces multiple federal drug trafficking indictments in the U.S. and is on most-wanted list in the U.S. His cartel has been heavily involved in the bloody drug war that has torn through parts of Mexico in the last years.
