A man described as “the head of a local drug distribution network” was arrested last week on drug delivery and possession charges.

40 year-old Marco Perez, said to have “ties to New York,” is charged with the manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance, and the possession of a controlled substance.  Oil City Police say Perez has already faced similar charges in Florida, Chicago and Puerto Rico.

Perez was arraigned Thursday and was placed in the Venango County Jail in Franklin with bail set at $10,000.
