Peru Police make an early morning heroin bust

Posted by wlpo on December 3, 2014

If you wondered what the commotion was Wednesday morning on the east side of Peru, it was a drug bust.

Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says they made one arrest around 6am in the area of the Illinois Valley Y. After making several undercover buys, Bernabei says they found 50 grams of heroin, much of it in raw powder form. Investigators also confiscated around $10,000 in cash.

Bernabei calls the bust “significant” in trying to curtail heroin in the Illinois Valley.
