Latest On Drug Investigation Involving Peru Doctor

Posted by wlpo on August 27, 2013

A Peru doctor was hauled off from his office and taken into custody for what’s being called a narcotics investigation.

Constantino Perales was taken away in a Peru police car shortly after 5 late Monday afternoon from his Seventh Street Clinic.  About 20 officers including Peru police and FBI agents milled around the office after Perales was taken into custody waiting for a federal search warrant to go into his office.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei called it a very lengthy and complex investigation.  Formal charges haven’t been filed but Bernabei thinks there will be both local and federal charges against the doctor.  He wouldn’t say specific narcotics allegedly involved in the sting.

Perales is expected to appear in court for bond either late Tuesday or Wednesday morning.
