CHENOA, Ill. -- A Chenoa man was arrested last week by Bloomington Police for possession child pornography.

Juan Bravo Jr., 40, of Chenoa was arrested on February 6 and charged in Federal Court with the receipt of child pornography after a search warrant was issued for his residence.

Authorities say that hundreds of images depicting the sexual abuse of children were seized.

Bravo was then taken into custody by the U.S. Marshal's Service pending a detention hearing in Federal Court in Peoria on February 12.
