Peru Bank Robber Pleads Not Guilty

Posted by wlpo on August 31, 2012

The alleged Eureka Savings Bank robber has pled not guilty.

Vernard King of Peoria was arraigned yesterday in La Salle County Court.  King was arrested last Wednesday, a day after prosecutors say he walked into the Eureka Savings Bank near the Peru mall, handed a teller a note implying he had a weapon, and got away with cash.  During his arrest at a home in La Salle, King allegedly put up a struggle and was taken to Illinois Valley Community Hospital.

King is being held at the La Salle County Jail on 750 thousand dollars bond.  He’s also called a person of interest in a Peoria County bank robbery.
