A Homer Glen man was arrested in Joliet on charges alleging he was in possession of child pornography on his iPhone, court records show.
On Monday, Connor P. Jones, 24, of the 14000 block of Renmore Road, was arrested at the Joliet Police Department’s west substation at 7196 Caton Farm Road, according to the Joliet police arrest log.
Jones was investigated by the Will County Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said Jones turned himself in to Joliet police.
The sheriff’s office said it received a tip Dec. 17 from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Illinois Attorney General’s Office in regard to possible child pornography uploaded and shared through a popular storage and sharing app.
In January, search warrants were secured to begin an investigation of the incident, according to the sheriff’s office.
Jones was identified by the sheriff’s office as the owner of an internet protocol address that had downloaded and shared child pornography.
On July 22, Judge Raymond Nash signed a warrant for Jones’ arrest that carried a $250,000 bond.
The arrest warrant was based on a criminal complaint filed against Jones that alleged he was in possession of child pornography on his iPhone.
The complaint alleged Jones was in possession of the images on July 9. He faces four counts of a child pornography charge.
Jones was not taken to jail after his arrest Monday and his father posted 10% of the $250,000 bond that Jones needed for his release from custody, according to court records.
