Sheriff Zaruba announces arrest of Hanover Park man on child pornography charges





Hanover Park man charged with four counts of Child Pornography by Sheriff’s Office S.P.E.E.D. Unit


Sheriff John Zaruba announced today the arrest and charging of a Hanover Park man by members of the Sheriff’s Office Sexual Predator Electronic Exploitation Detective Unit (S.P.E.E.D).


DuPage County Sheriff’s detectives executed a search warrant on March 22, 2017, at 6:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of Lucille Lane in Hanover Park.  The issuance of the search warrant was a result of an undercover Internet investigation into the possession and distribution of child pornography files. S.P.E.E.D. Unit detectives removed electronics from the residence and a forensic examination of those electronics revealed the presence of child pornography files.


Resident, Richard M. Chanchico, M/A, DOB: 12/21/1985, of the 1800 block of Lucille Lane in Hanover Park was taken into custody without incident this morning.  Chanchico has been charged with four counts of Child Pornography, which are class two felonies.  Chanchico is currently being held in the DuPage County Jail and is scheduled to appear in bond court later today.


The DuPage County Sheriff’s Office reminds readers that any charges indicated in this document are merely accusations, and the listed defendants are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
