Police said in a news release Stehle "solicited indecent liberties" and targeted Elmhurst juveniles on Craigslist.

They said the arrest was the result of the department's efforts to prevent and detect computer-related crimes and sexual predatory-type offenses.

Stehle was formally charged with indecent solicitation of a child. He was taken into custody without incident and his bond was set at $100,000.

He is due in court July 9.
