A Florida man who has been running a pony rental business for childrens' birthday parties turns out to be a convicted cocaine dealer and an alleged member of the ultra-violent Central American drug gang Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13. Dilbert Coreas has been arrested and charged with illegally entering the country after he was deported in 2012 for cocaine possession and intent to sell. He had reportedly been running a children's entertainment business, “It'z a Kidz World Party Planning and Rental,” which rents out ponies for $70 and bouncy castles for $85. But he blew his cover after posting some pictures on Facebook that suggested MS-13 involvement, drawing the attention of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Gang Unit. MS-13 has been classified as a "transnational criminal organization" with a suspected 30,000 members operating in the US, across 40 states; they are known for their heavy involvement in drug and weapons smuggling, human trafficking, money laundering and murder-for-hire plots.
