A member of Colombia's dreaded "Los Topos" gang who escaped prison after being incarcerated last year was caught by police this week despite having undergone a very "convincing sex change."
Giovanni Rebolledo, who was sentenced to serve 60 years for a laundry list of crimes that included robbery, extortion, kidnapping, and torture, had been living as a prostitute named Rosalinda in the northern coastal city of Barranquilla (Shakira’s hometown) for the past two months.
In addition to the assumed identity, Rebolledo also augmented his physical appearance with plastic surgery and a boob job.
In the end, all his efforts did little to fool the fuzz.
Rebolledo was ultimately identified and apprehended during a routine stop and frisk in a neighborhood known for its prostitution.
Rebolledo's gang, Los Topos (The Moles), are infamous in Colombia's capital city of Bogotá for employing women to seduce rich men who are then kidnapped and tortured for money.
