A 63-year-old Romeoville man was arrested on child porn charges after a search warrant was executed at his 506 N. Frieh Drive home, the Will County State's Attorney's Office announced.

Miguel Luna was arrested Wednesday with assistance from the Romeoville Police Department following an investigation by the High Technology Crimes Unit, State's Attorney's Office spokesman Chuck Pelkie said.

Pelkie said Luna previously worked as a part-time police officer for the Blue Island Police Department, and is a camp leader with Pathfinders, which is part of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. The organization is involved with the cultural, social and religious education of children and adolescents between the ages of 10 and 15, according to Pelkie, who said he did not know how recently Luna worked as a police officer.

Luna is charged with one count of dissemination of child porn, a class X felony that carries a sentence of six to 30 years in prison if he's convicted, without the possibility of probation as a sentencing option. He is also charged with two counts of possession of child porn, a class 2 felony punishable by three to seven years if convicted.

Luna appeared in court Thursday afternoon, where his bond was set at $50,000; he would have to post 10 percent to be released. As a condition of his bond, Luna cannot have unsupervised contact with anyone under 18, and he must surrender his passport. He is scheduled to appear in court next for a preliminary hearing or arraignment at 9 a.m. July 24.

Detectives with the High Technology Crimes Unit executed a search warrant and seized Luna’s computer as part of the investigation, which is ongoing, Pelkie said. 

Anyone who has information pertaining to Miguel Luna is asked to contact the High Technology Crimes Unit at (815) 727-8453.

State’s Attorney James Glasgow established the unit in February 2012 to track and arrest individuals who trade child pornography over the Internet. 

“The High Technology Crimes Unit has launched investigations that have resulted in the arrest and charging of more than 40 individuals suspected of trading child pornography or soliciting children over the Internet,” Glasgow said in a press release Thursday. “Our goal is to stop the production and dissemination of child pornography and halt the exploitation of our children.”

HA!! I worked at AHH with this guy for a decade. I always knew there was something sick about him by the creepy vibe he gave off. It didn't help that he looked at all women like pieces of meat, including me. He even asked me out a couple times while he was married! Yuck. Protect your kids from creepers like this guy.

I'm noticing that people are mention he's union or he's a cop or whatever but none of you have touched on the fact that he's supposedly a 'good' RELIGIOUS man working with children!! Shouldn't we be focusing more on that part? I knew him and I saw right through him. He has a great way of fooling people into making them think he's such a great guy. He's clearly a sicko.
