Drug agents check mail to home of Indians’ Perez
Question of the Day
Rocky River Police Chief Kelly Stillman said city officers, a regional narcotics unit and postal inspectors were involved in Tuesday’s operation to investigate a delivery to the Perez home in the lakeside Cleveland suburb.
No charges have been filed and the matter remains under investigation. A message seeking comment was left for Perez’s attorney.
At a news conference Wednesday, the chief said the operation likely originated with a package that appeared suspicious to postal employees. “They took it from there,” he said.
Officers with a search warrant took evidence from the Perez house, according to the chief, but the seized items weren’t specified.
Whatever was contained in the “controlled delivery of narcotics” must be analyzed at the state crime laboratory, according to the chief, who stopped short of speculating what it was.
“Depending on what it was and how much it was, charges will be filed accordingly,” Stillman said.
“I spoke to him this morning, called him, just wanted to make sure he was OK,” he said. “Out of respect to everybody involved, that’s really all I can say.”
The Indians‘ often-polarizing closer has six saves this season, but is on the disabled list with an injured right shoulder. He and Cleveland fans have gotten on each other’s nerves over the last couple years, and he recently deactivated his Twitter account after hearing it from fans following a couple of bad outings.
In previous seasons, Perez has criticized fans for not coming to games, and ownership for not spending money on free agents.
The right-hander was supposed to start throwing again this week. Francona said he wasn’t sure if the investigation would affect Perez‘ injury rehabilitation.
“I don’t know. I honestly don’t know,” he said. “Let’s not only go one day at a time, let’s go one hour at a time here.”
