A Glendale Heights man, formerly of Crystal Lake, was arrested Monday after a child pornography investigation.

The investigation started after Crystal Lake police were contacted by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Detectives searched 23-year-old Andrew E. Alexander’s Glendale Heights home, along with his vehicle and electronics about 6:30 a.m. Friday, according to a news release from Crystal Lake police.

Glendale Heights police arrested Alexander on several counts of possession of child pornography, the release stated. Crystal Lake police on Friday filed similar charges against Alexander in McHenry County court.

His McHenry County bond is set at $75,000, and he’s scheduled to go before a judge June 1.

Alexander moved from Crystal Lake to Glendale Heights within the past year, Crystal Lake Deputy Police Chief Derek Hyrkas said in an email Tuesday.

It was not clear if any of the victims were known to Alexander, Hyrkas said.
