Marijuana Growing Arrest In Peru

Posted by wlpo on January 26, 2011

Police in Peru say they’ve busted a marijuana growing operation.

After getting a suspicious activity call, police and a parole agent searched the 8th Street apartment of Charlie John.  John’s accused of having several marijuana plants plus growing equipment and paraphernalia.  He was taken to the county jail after being arrested for unlawful production of cannabis sativa plants.

John was already on parole for a 2001 conviction of delivery of cocaine in La Salle County.  In 1988, he was convicted of attempted murder and armed robbery in Cook County.
