On April, 2018, Perez was arrested U.S.-Mexico border after being charged two years earlier in a sealed indictment based on tips from informants whose identities remain secret. Perez and her husband played a great role in supplying wholesale amounts of meth to the Twin Cities metropolitan area.  She is allegedly the leader of a stash house/ cell in the Brooklyn Center area that was taken down by DEA law enforcement agents on May 2016.  The police netted a historic 140 pounds of meth found throughout the home. Much of it was packed tightly into plastic quart-sized bags for distribution, but agents also found liquid meth cooling in a freezer and residue left behind in roasting pans in the kitchen. 
Although she has been arrested and is being held in prison, Perez may soon win early release, under GPS monitoring, to await trial after her attorney successfully lobbied against federal detention. Countering prosecutors’ assertions that Perez is a cartel operative, attorney Gary Wolf argued that as a U.S. citizen with family in the U.S., she does not pose a flight risk. 
The amount, and purity, of meth Perez is accused of supplying will carry the possibility of decades in prison, potentially a life sentence.
