Ricardo Cruz

Nearly four years after the alleged crime was committed, a Peru man has been taken into custody.

Twenty-six-year-old Ricardo Cruz was booked into the La Salle County Jail Thursday afternoon on a warrant for burglary.  Back on July 4th, 2016, Cruz is accused of breaking into an apartment in La Salle and taking a safe that included money and personal documents of his victim.  Detectives say DNA evidence linked Cruz to the crime scene. 

He has come up with $500 and is back out of jail.
