Peru man arrested for prescription painkiller

Posted by wlpo on July 8, 2011

It’s taken three and a half months, but a man whose Peru home was searched in March has been arrested on a felony drug charge.

At the time Joseph Welk was arrested for possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia after police officers went through his home on Walnut Street.

Police had said they found another drug that was sent to a crime lab.  Police say that turned out to be a prescription painkiller.  A warrant was issued for possession of a controlled substance.  Welk was picked up on the warrant while in court July 1.  He was being held in the La Salle County Jail with his bond set at $7,500.
