Man charged in $2.2M Winnipeg drug bust previously convicted in parents’ murders

A man charged after a multi-million-dollar drug bust in Winnipeg last month had previously been convicted of murder in the shooting deaths of his parents, Global News has learned.

James Daniel Perlett, 43, and another man are facing a long list of drug charges after police say officers found $2.2 million worth of meth and cocaine during a raid at a Winnipeg apartment.

The arrests followed a months-long investigation into a city drug ring, said police.

Court records show Perlett was found guilty in 1999 for the killings of his mother and father, who were shot to death while asleep in their bed at their Fort Frances, Ont. home in 1996.
