Peru police bust heroin suspect at his home

NT Staff

Peru police have busted another heroin suspect in their ongoing narcotics crackdown.

Jason D. Anderson, 24, of 1117 St. Vincent’s Ave., La Salle was picked up at 5:45 p.m. Thursday in his home on a La Salle County warrant charging him with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance (heroin).

The charge is a Class 2 felony with a base sentencing range of 3-7 years. Bond is set at $500,000.

Anderson was picked up by detectives of the Peru Police Special Investigations and Enforcement Unit, assisted by La Salle police, who are conducting a continuing investigation of heroin distribution in the Peru area.

“The mandate given to our drug officers is to make the distribution of heroin an absolute enforcement priority of our drug unit,” Peru police chief Doug Bernabei said. “Anderson is yet another individual who joins a group of many other people who have been arrested by Peru drug detectives involving the distribution of heroin.”
