Watch Colombian Drug Lord Juan Castro Escape La Picota Prison Using a Guard’s Uniform

A video of Colombian drug lord Juan Castro escaping from the La Picota prison in Bogotá using a guard’s uniform has gone viral on the internet. The prison break was successful and Juan Castro is still on the run. That was a smooth escape.

The New York Post has details:

Castro aka “Matamba” disguised himself as a prison guard in full uniform and strolled out of the facility without being halted by any of the authorities on site. This occurrence came while his extradition to the United States hung in the balance. Astonishingly enough, Castro’s absence wasn’t even noticed until the following morning when the prisoner missed the daily roll-call.

Upon reviewing surveillance footage from the night of the incident, prison officials learned that Castro managed to walk through several prison doors and security gates en route to his grand exit, all while many of the security checkpoints were left unattended, which raised suspicion about foul play amongst their own staff members. Therefore, prison director Juan Gordillo and all 55 guards who were on shift at the time of Castro’s escape have been suspended. The prison guard suspected of giving Castro his uniform has been arrested.

Since Castro’s daring escape from prison, Colombian President Iván Duque enacted an all-out reform of the country’s prison system, stating, “[Columbia] cannot continue to have these behaviors without exemplary sanctions.”

Up until last Tuesday, Castro had attempted to escape from prison several times, resulting in his arrest on half a dozen different occasions. He is known nationwide as the puppetmaster behind 20 percent of Columbia’s cocaine shipments in the Northwest region.

He definitely had a lot of help and this is straight out of the Prison Break series.

El Chapo spent all that money on tunnels when he could have just got a guard’s uniform and walked out. Could have saved himself a lot of money.
