"The Naperville Police Department will relentlessly pursue anyone engaged in such heinous acts as creating or distributing child pornography in this community," said Interim Police Chief Jason Arres. "I want to acknowledge our investigators for doing a great job in putting these investigations together and working with the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office to bring charges against these individuals."

The Naperville Police wish to remind the public and the news media that a charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.

Anyone with information regarding these investigations is encouraged to contact the Naperville Police Department at (630) 420-6665 and ask for the Investigations Division.
