Peru Police say gun related call was made up

If you’re going to tell police someone pointed a gun at you, you better not be lying.

Officers think 55-year-old Gerald Dempsey of Peru was lying when he called them Saturday afternoon saying he had a gun pointed at him. Dempsey was arrested for making a false police report.

He was taken to the La Salle County Jail with his bond set at $15,000. Dempsey is due in court Thursday.
