Mariano Verucchi

The wrap sheet continues to grow for a Peru man.

Twenty-year-old Mariano Verucchi was indicted Tuesday in La Salle County for unlawful possession of a controlled substance. The charge stems from an arrest in Ottawa back in February where he's also charged with possession of a stolen firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm. Verucchi also faces weapons charges from an incident in Peru in 2019 when a woman was shot at a motel.

He's locked up in the La Salle County Jail needing $100,000 to bond out.
