Peru Police Arrest First Suspected Cocaine Dealer Since Expanding Investigation

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2016

Just one week after announcing they would expand their investigation into drug dealing to include cocaine, the Peru Police Department has made another arrest.

Shortly before 2:00 Tuesday afternoon, police pulled over Juwaun Hodges of Spring Valley on Route 6 just west of Peru. Hodges was arrested for allegedly selling cocaine to undercover police in March. According to police, Hodges resisted arrest and “received a head injury” while being taken into custody.

He’s currently under police guard at Illinois Valley Community Hospital and is expected to be taken to the LaSalle County Jail later Tuesday afternoon. His bail was set at $1,000,000.
