Streator man arrested
STREATOR – A Streator man has been arrested on two counts of dissemination of child pornography, which are Class X felonies.
A search warrant was executed this week by Illinois State Police, Peoria County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Secret Service and the Illinois Attorney General’s High-Tech Crimes Bureau in the 400 block of West Grant Street in Streator.
Ryan P. Cook, 41, was arrested following an investigation into the matter and is being held at the LaSalle County Adult Detention Facility on a $500,000 bond.
“Several child pornography files were located and observed being shared on multiple electronic devices leading to the arrest,” said a news release from Illinois State Police.
The investigation is ongoing and authorities say no further information will be released by police.
