Peru Smoke Shop Robbed At Gunpoint

Posted by wlpo on January 23, 2012

Your help is needed in tracking down an armed robber in Peru.

Just after 9 this morning, police got a call that a man held a small handgun to the head of a worker at Peru Smoke Shop and stole an undisclosed amount of cash.  He was wearing a mask and wearing a black coat, black gloves and blue jeans.  The alleged robber is around 6 feet tall and 250 pounds.  He ran out the back door.

A K-9 was quickly called in to try and help in the search.  An officer was also sent to nearby Peru Catholic School just as a precaution.

If you have information, call the Peru PD or Illinois Valley Crime Stoppers.
