BLOOMINGTON -- An area man faces charges of receiving child pornography. 40-year old Juan Bravo, Jr., of Chenoa, was arrested Thursday after the execution of a search warrant at his residence yielded digital media which contained hundreds of images of sexual abuse of children.

Bravo was charged in Peoria Federal Court and is the custody of the U.S. Marshals. He's due back in court Wednesday.

Multiple law enforcement agencies were involved in the investigation including the Bloomington Police Cybercrimes Unit, the McLean County Sheriff's Department, Chenoa Police Department and U.S. Secret Service.
