ROMEOVILLE – A part-time Blue Island police officer has been charged with distributing child pornography.

Miguel Luna, 63, was arrested Wednesday on one count of distributing child pornography and two counts of possessing child pornography, according to a news release from the Will County State’s Attorney’s office. Luna faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted.

Luna, of the 500 block of North Frieh Drive, was arrested by Romeoville police and the state’s attorney’s High Technology Crimes Unit.

According to the release, Luna also has worked as a camp leader with Pathfinders, an organization that works with children between the ages of 10 and 15 for the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

Luna’s computer was seized during a search of his residence. The state’s attorney’s office asked anyone with information about Luna to call 815-727-8453.

State’s Attorney James Glasgow said more than 40 people have been arrested on charges of trading child pornography or soliciting children online since the High Tech Crimes Unit was established in February 2012.
