A 46-year-old Joliet man was arrested Thursday after Illinois State Police reportedly found child pornography on a laptop in his home.

After an ongoing investigation with the Attorney General’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security, Illinois State Police executed a search warrant Thursday on Samuel Prado’s home in Joliet, according to a news release from state police.

Prado lives in the 200 block of Willow Avenue, according to Will County jail logs.

A cyber tip led law enforcement to his home, the release said. Once police arrived, they reportedly found images and videos of child pornography on a laptop. Prado was charged with possessing child pornography and booked into the Will County jail.
