    Romen Rafael Perez (47, Sarasota), Pedro Perez-Garcia (51, Sarasota), and Juan Miguel Martinez-Garcia (33, Sarasota) purchased more than 80 firearms from federally licensed firearms dealers located in the Middle District of Florida. The defendants represented themselves to be the actual buyers of each firearm at the time of purchase, despite having preexisting plans to ship those firearms to the Dominican Republic. During shipment, the men hid the firearms among innocuous items, such as clothing and food, and failed to inform the common carrier that the packages contained firearms. On September 11, 2019, investigators intercepted one such package destined for Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Inside, they discovered and seized 12 Glock semi-automatic 9mm handguns and accompanying magazines, as well as speed loaders hidden within several packages of breakfast cereal.
