Two former Major League Baseball stars were arrested in the Dominican Republic on Tuesday in what officials called “the largest operation against organized crime” in the country.
Octavio Dotel and Luis Castillo were among the 18 people arrested as part of a drug-trafficking and money-laundering investigation conducted with the help of U.S. authorities, Dominican Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez said in a press conference. Officials said the two former pro athletes are linked to a drug-trafficking network led by Cesear Emilio “El Abusador” Peralta, who is still being sought by authorities.
