Alleged drug lord ‘Cesar the Abuser’ faces cocaine charges in Florida

According to the FBI and U.S. Treasury officials, Peralta was more than just a nightclub owner who reveled in a flashy lifestyle: They say he’s an international drug kingpin with a history of evading capture by authorities. They charge that Peralta, 45, ran the Dominican Republic’s most extensive drug trafficking operation, moving heroin and cocaine from South America across the Caribbean and into the United States and Europe through clandestine air and maritime routes.
