A lengthy investigation has led to a drug bust on the east end of Peru.

Officers Wednesday evening went to the 5th Street home of 27-year-old Cynthia Waltz and 35-year-old James Akins.  Both are accused of dealing cocaine to members of the Trident Drug Task Force.  Akins faces two counts of dealing while Waltz was hit with a single count. 

Both were hauled off to the La Salle County Jail.  Akins needs $100,000 to bond out while Waltz needs $50,000 to get out.
