DuPage County Sheriff John E. Zaruba announced Friday that deputies have arrested an Addison man for possession of child pornography.
Zaruba said Julian L. McElyea, 32, of the 100 block of School Street, was charged with six felony counts.
Zaruba said detectives from the sheriff's S.P.E.E.D. (Sexual Predator Electronic Exploitation Division) unit conducted the investigation. On Wednesday, authorities searched McElyea's home, where numerous electronics were seized, deputies said.
A forensic preview of the electronics showed multiple pornographic images and movie files depicting children, authorities said.
McElyea is being held in the DuPage County jail on $100,000 bail.
