Sheriff's police said a search warrant obtained from a judge was executed at Jinkens' Zion home April 11. Devices capable of storing electronic media were seized from the home, officials said.

Authorities said a forensic examination of the devices revealed several images identified as child porn.

Investigators from the sheriff's cybercrimes unit and the Lake County state's attorney's office collaborated on the probe of Jinkens. It was the second child porn bust by the investigators in about the past two weeks.

On March 28, authorities announced that Jason C. Boettcher, 26, of the 39200 block of North Spruce Street in unincorporated Lake Villa Township, was charged with five counts of child pornography possession.

Police said a forensic examination of computer hard drives led to the charges against Boettcher. He's to appear for a hearing April 23 in Lake County circuit court.
