          A local doctor who had his office raided by the FBI was indicted on felony drug charges.  Dr. Constantino Perales of Peru faces two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance in La Salle County.  He was indicted Tuesday.

Officers arrested Perales at his Seventh Street Clinic office in Peru August 26.  The arrest came after what police called a lengthy investigation into the dealing of Oxycontin and Lorazepam, both prescription drugs. 

Perales remains in the La Salle County Jail with his bond set at $1 million.  At the time of Perales’s arrested, La Salle County State’s Attorney Brian Towne said more charges were expected.
