Peru Bank Robbery Trial Delayed

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2009

Trials for two guys suspected of robbing the Peru Federal Savings Bank on Shooting Park Road were delayed this week.

53 year old Richard Rigg and 36 year old Chad Diederich out of the Quad Cities were supposed to stand trial Monday.  However the trial’s are put off because lawyers say they’re close to a plea deal for Rigg and Diederich is wanting a private lawyer since he’s unhappy with the public defender.  The next status hearing for the two is December 17th.

Rigg and Diederich were stopped on Interstate 80 in Ottawa just minutes after allegedly robbing Peru Federal on September 4th.  Diederich is accused of being the robber while Rigg was driving the getaway car.
