SOUTH MIAMI-DADE, Fla. — A local soldier provided back up for local police officers during a major drug operation.
U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Lazaro Perez went along with Miami-Dade Police officers during Operation Machete, which consisted of a series of drug raids at several residences across the county. "Anything dealing with that kind of work, anything dealing with guns and taking down bad guys, I'm there. I love it," said Perez.
The Miami-Dade Police Department provided video of the staff sergeant's ride-along during Wednesday's drug busts. "From what I've seen today, and when you see how much they have taken off the streets, they're doing a great job back here," Perez said.
