Peru Man and Joliet Woman Latest Arrests in Peru Drug Crackdown

Posted by wlpo on August 6, 2016

The Peru Police have made their efforts to crack down on heroin dealers in the Illinois Valley well-known. That investigation led them to two alleged crack cocaine dealers who were busted Friday.

The first arrest was 51-year old Carl Winchester who was picked up at his house in the city just after 5. He was charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance but police say more charges are expected after they found crack cocaine in his house while he was being arrested.

A Joliet woman was also busted for allegedly selling drugs in Peru. Thirty-two year old Kandi Davis was arrested Friday night after 9:30. Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei said he “genuinely believes these are the first in the next round of arrests.”

Winchester and Davis were taken to the LaSalle County jail where his bond was set at $500,000 and she is still waiting on a bond hearing.
