BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — It is tough to find good workers nowadays, and thanks to the Boca Raton Police Department, it’s even tougher to find a good drug dealer. If accusations made by police are correct — and we of course do not know if they are — then the arrest of Vitor Peres may make it difficult for some area drug users to find the merchandise they seek.
Peres was just arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell, possession of MDMA, and possession and or use of drug paraphernalia. He is being held Tuesday afternoon in the Palm Beach County Jail. Bond is set at $9,000.
In addition to the drug charges, Peres allegedly attempted to flee police as they attempted to take him into custody, so he’s also charged with a version of resisting arrest. The takedown went down around 3 a.m. The arrest continues to be processed Tuesday afternoon. We’ll update once we obtain more specifics.
Peres, 21, lives in the 2500 block of North Federal Highway. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at 3:12 a.m. Tuesday. Peres was charged with Grand Theft Auto in January of 2020, but prosecutors declined to pursue the case.
