Peru police burglary arrest

Posted by wlpo on January 2, 2011

A phone tip sent Peru police to a construction site to catch a burglar red-handed. Back on December 26, around 8pm, Peru police were notified of a burglary in progress at Illinois Valley Professional complex at 3602 Marquette road. As police arrived they saw 39-year old William Davis of Peru loading a large ladder into his truck. After questioning, police learned he was going to take a propane heater also. A search of Davis’s truck uncovered a loaded 380 handgun. The States Attorney approved charges of burglary, possession of burglary tools and unlawful use of a weapon. Davis was transported to LaSalle county jail.
