Lake Zurich man facing child pornography charges

A Lake Zurich man was watching child pornography when authorities served a search warrant at his home Tuesday, Lake County sheriff’s investigators said.

Jared R. Honegger, 24, was arrested at his home after authorities received a tip that child pornography was being downloaded at the residence, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said Honegger was located in his bedroom watching one of “dozens of videos” recovered during the search.

A search of Honegger’s phone uncovered more than 90 images and videos of child pornography, many involving children younger than 13, authorities said.

He was charged with five counts of possession of child pornography, all felonies.

Honegger was in court for a detention hearing Wednesday and is currently being held at the Lake County jail, according to the website.
