EDWARDSVILLE, IL (KPLR) – The Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office charged a 59-year-old Godfrey man for allegedly distributing child pornography via the internet.

According to Captain T. Mike Dixon, a spokesman for the Madison County Sheriff’s Office, investigators received information April 21 linking a home in the 4900 block of Cinderella Drive to distribution of the illicit material. On April 28, authorities executed a search warrant and seized computer and digital media devices, which were found to contain child porn.

The homeowner, Michael Myers, was present at the time of the search and taken into custody.

Myers was charged Friday with three felony counts of child pornography. He remains in custody at Madison County Jail on $300,000 bond.
