Grenades were tossed by Mexican authorities inside home, but Guzman escaped capture by dropping down a manhole and entering the city's sewers, reports Mediate.

Guzman reportedly stole a car but was later apprehended by authorities.

Mexico is planning to extradite Guzman to the U.S. where he faces numerous charges, reports The New York Times.
