Two arrested for cocaine charges

Posted by wlpo on August 21, 2014

You hear a lot about heroin abuse in the Illinois Valley but cocaine is also available. Allegedly it was as close as Eighth Street in Peru. Police with TRIDENT Wednesday arrested Matthew Pelka of Peru after they say he sold cocaine to someone working undercover.

Meanwhile, in Ottawa, officers arrested Raymond Joyce, the third, after a lengthy investigation.

Both Joyce and Pelka were charged with unlawful delivery of cocaine and were being held in the La Salle County Jail with their bonds at $1 million.
