CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A northwest suburban man has been charged after police found an "extensive amount" of child pornography in his home.

Stephen A. O'Dette, 61, of Fox Lake, was charged with six counts of possession of child pornography, according to a statement from the Lake County Sheriff's office.

The sheriff's cybercrimes unit executed a search warrant at O'Dette's home in the 0-100 block of Highview Avenue in Fox Lake on Thursday and seized several media devices containing child pornography, the statement said.

Authorities said based on the "extensive amount" of pornography, the investigation will continue and additional charges could be filed.

Bond was set at $300,000 for O'Dette, who is next scheduled to appear in court March 24 in Waukegan.
