Multijurisdictional Investigation Leads to Child Pornography Arrest
Over the last several months, several police agencies joined together on a Child Pornography investigation that has resulted in the arrest of 44 year-old, Brian E. Miller, on Monday, February 29, 2016.
The investigation was initiated by the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office High Tech Crimes Unit after they had identified a prolific Internet child pornography offender “geo-locating” in Kankakee County. They were joined by the Kankakee County Sheriff’s Office, Bourbonnais Police Department, Kankakee City Police Department and the Illinois Attorney General’s Office to assist with the investigation.
On February 29, 2016, a search warrant was executed at a mobile home, located at 61 St. Paul Dr. in Bourbonnais, IL. Several computers, digital storage devices and other evidence were seized from the residence. Miller was arrested and charged with 5 counts of Possession of Child Pornography and is currently being held in the Jerome Combs Detention Center. At this point in the investigation it is not believed any physical abuse occurred within Kankakee County. The related offenses incorporate the downloading and securing large amounts of child pornography.
The investigation is ongoing and a forensic computer analysis on the evidence recovered is being conducted by the Will County State’s Attorney’s High Tech Crimes Unit. Undersheriff Mike Downey praised all of the agencies involved for their hard work and cooperation that resulted in the arrest of Miller. He additionally thanked Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow for his dedication to public safety in forming the Will County State’s Attorney’s High Tech Crimes Unit and allowing them to assist in taking dangerous offenders out of our neighborhoods.
