Donte Blow

A Tennessee man accused of armed robbery at the Peru Walgreens is looking for legal help.

Twenty-one-year-old Donte Blow was in court Friday and told the judge he is still trying to hire a private lawyer.  The judge gave him a few more days to find one as he is due back in court Wednesday.  Until then Blow will be represented by a public defender.

He and 22-year-old Anthony Riggs of Indianapolis were arrested last July after they allegedly held up Walgreens in Peru.  They were tracked down not long after the heist after police used stop sticks to stop their vehicle on Interstate 39 near Wenona.

While Blow is back in court next week, Riggs has a final pretrial hearing scheduled for the 25th.  Both men are locked up needing $7,500 to get out of jail.
