Bobby Perez showed agents the marijuana packages throughout the home including in a duffel bag, white suitcase and a black box in the home. Additionally, more marijuana was found in the garage in a backpack and on the washing machine. The deputies noted a “heavy and unmistakable odor of marijuana.”
He told deputies that he “intended to sell the 15 pounds he bought in a quick sale to make money because he has a child on the way.” According to the report, Perez was five months pregnant in July.
When Marquita Perez was asked who does the laundry, she said both she and her husband do. When asked if she ever smelled marijuana in the home or on her husband, she said maybe on her husband, but said he didn’t smoke.
Bobby Perez was arrested on July 26. Deputies note in the report they were waiting for DNA results to see if they would arrest Marquita. In December, deputies got the results back, and her DNA was found on the bags used to package the marijuana as well as other items.
