Mendez arrested on drug charge

SPRING VALLEY — The Tri-County Drug Enforcement Narcotics Team (TRI-DENT) arrested Andres Mendez Jr., 38, of Spring Valley on an original LaSalle County arrest warrant on March 7 and charged him with the Class 2 felony of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance, heroin.

The arrest warrant was issued for Mendez following a lengthy investigation by TRI-DENT into narcotic sales activity in the LaSalle/Peru area, with that investigation resulting in Mendez’s arrest.

On a previous occasion, Mendez delivered less than one gram of purported heroin to an undercover TRI-DENT agent.
