JOLIET, Ill. (WLS) -- A southwest suburban man has been charged with possession of child pornography, according to Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office.

Prosecutors say 26-year-old Anthony Rutten, from Joliet, was tracked down online, then arrested after authorities raided his home.

Rutten has been charged with two counts of felony possession of child pornography.

His arrest was part of the Operation Glass House initiative, which has put 82 sexual offenders behind bars in Illinois.
