Authorities say they've arrested a Chicago man on child pornography charges after finding 2,500 images and videos on his computer -- some of which were of children as young as 1-year-old.
In a news release, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart's office says investigators arrested 51-year-old Seamus Webb without incident on Thursday. Investigators executed a search warrant at Webb's apartment that was based on a tip from the FBI. The release says Webb has been charged with felony counts of various child pornography charges and seized from his apartment computers and other items.
