Meth in the Badlands: The Story of Pastor Al Peratt Trafficked with Mariana van Zeller

    • True Crime

Al Peratt’s trafficking career started when he was in the military: legal clerk by day, hashish dealer at night. The gig turned to heroin, and after a lengthy prison sentence, to dealing meth in San Diego’s biker scene. He later fled the city—but not his old habits. In the Black Hills of rural South Dakota, he started one of the area’s biggest meth rings.
