A several months-long investigation resulted in the arrest of a Huntley man after detectives executed a warrant and found him in possession of child pornography, police said.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) notified the Huntley Police Department in June about information that was obtained from the Internet Crimes Against Children data system.
An unidentified internet subscriber was flagged for possibly possessing child pornography, according to Huntley Deputy Police Chief Linda Hooten.
The Huntley Police Department Investigations Division conducted a four-month investigation that led to the identification of the offender, Allen Q. Nguyen, 29, of Huntley.
Police detectives and the Kane County Child Exploitation Unit served a search warrant in the early morning hours on Tuesday, Hooten said.
Hooten said the warrant was executed at a residence in the 10400 block of Auburn Court in Huntley where Nguyen was renting a room.
Detectives recovered evidence of child pornography during their search warrant.
Court records show the material recovered involved sexually explicit videos of children, some under the age of 13.
Nguyen was taken into custody and transported to the McHenry County Jail.
Nguyen was charged with four counts of child pornography, two of which are Class X felonies and the other two are Class 2 felonies.
Hooten said an active investigation into Nguyen is still underway and no further details could be released yet.
