Are Peru Police targeting people with animal last names or is just coincidence that guys named Duck and Fish were arrested a few hours apart for drugs?

Peru Police on Thursday first stopped Andrew Duck of Las Vegas at Interstate 80 and Route 251.  He was arrested for possession of less than 30 grams of cannabis and released with a court date.

About two hours later at the same spot, Timothy Fish of Massachusetts was pulled over and arrested for felony possession of cannabis.  Investigators say he had about three ounces of pot.

Fish was taken to the county jail.
