Inside drug baron El Chapo’s home you can own for £90k as it’s up for auction

The house of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman will be auctioned for the fourth time next week.

The starting price of the house, which has so far failed to sell despite being put up for auction three times, is around £90,000.

Authorities announced that in order to participate it is necessary to post a deposit of £7,000, local newspaper Infobae reports.

The house is located at 1811 Emiliano Garcia Street in Colonia Libertad, in the city of Culiacan, in the state of Sinaloa in northwestern Mexico.

It has increased its sale value after the price of the house was cut in half at the previous auction.

The property was seized when law enforcement carried out operations to capture the founder of the Sinaloa Cartel in February 2014.

On that occasion, the authorities found plastic bananas filled with cocaine and plastic cucumbers filled with marijuana.

In addition, there were weapons, cartridges and drugs, reports Infobae.

El Chapo was able to flee together with his former deputy Lucero Sanchez before Navy agents arrived, the same local newspaper reports.

The house is connected with another one located on Enrique Colunga street, which, like this one, also has a passageway under the bathtub.

In 2014, when he was captured El Chapo admitted to the Mexican authorities to have killed between 2,000 and 3,000 people.
