Definition of watcho


  • a watchman for a drug dealer. From Northern Mexican Spanish "guacho" (sentinel) which came from American military English "watch". I have heard that the term was borrowed into Mexican Spanish during the 1914 border strife.
    There's always one or two watchos hanging around the balconies at that place.
