El Chapo is already on his way to supermax prison

(NEW YORK POST) — Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Shorty.

The feds wasted no time in getting rid of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman — tossing the Mexican druglord into a helicopter to start his journey to the supermax prison in Colorado almost immediately after he was sentenced to life plus 30 years behind bars, The Post has learned.

“He went from a helicopter to a plane,” an astounded source revealed Wednesday evening. “He’s no longer in the state.”

The speedy departure occurred despite a request from Guzman’s defense team that their client be allowed to remain in New York City for 60 days so they could work on his appeal.

Following the request from attorneys Jeffrey Lichtman and Mark Fernich, Brooklyn federal judge Brian Cogan said he would recommend the Mexican kingpin be allowed to head back to the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he’s been held since he was extradited to New York in 2017.

But instead of heading back to his cell, Guzman was escorted into a chopper and whisked away.

“He’s either already arrived in Colorado, or he’s still in route,” the source said.
