Spring Valley resident arrested in Chicago on drug charge

A Spring Valley resident was picked up in Chicago on drug charges back home.

Hayley K. Edwards, 19, was arrested on complaints of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, a class one felony.

Detectives of the Peru Police Department and Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team conducted a joint investigation and secured an arrest warrant as the result of an undercover police operation in October. Police said Edwards delivered more than one but less than 15 grams of cocaine.

Police said Edwards fled the area and has been in Chicago where she was located and arrested on Tuesday.

Edwards was taken to the Cook County Jail and then transported to the La Salle County Jail.

Bond for Edwards has been set at $1 million.
