Escaped Colombian gangster undergoes sex change and dresses as a woman to evade capture
An escaped convict underwent a sex change and started living as a woman in an attempt to avoid recapture by the authorities.
Giovanni Rebolledo, who was sentenced to 60 years in prison for kidnapping, robbery and extortion in 2012 before escaping, was working as a prostitute called Rosalinda when police found her in the Vjiejo Prado district of the norther coastal city of Barranquilla.
He had reportedly spent £11,500 on breast implants, a buttock enhancement and a nose job to change his appearance.
According to the El Tiempo newspaper, police recognised Rebolledo during a routine stop and search, and following the arrest paraded the former member of the Los Topos criminal gang in front of the media.
