City of Peru dump truck stolen

Jeff Dankert
NewsTribune Reporter

A city of Peru dump truck was stolen this earlier this week out of a storage building, according to Peru police.

The 2003 orange 3-ton International truck went missing between 7 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday from a building at 2828 Market St., according to the police report.

This building is leased by the city from W.H. Maze Co. for storage of public works equipment.

The city is processing an insurance claim for the truck, said Sean Mikos, city engineer and public works superintendent.

Peru police ask anyone with information about the burglary or missing truck to call the police department at (815) 223-2151 or Illinois Valley Crime Stoppers at (800) 340-4045.
