Galesburg man arrested for possessing child porn

A Galesburg man was arrested Wednesday for being in possession of child pornography.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Department announced on Facebook that 40-year-old Nicholas L. Johnson was taken into custody by deputies and officers with the Galesburg Police Department after a search warrant was executed at his residence at 830 Pine Street.

Little information was released, but the search warrant was a result of an investigation led by a sheriff’s department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force member.

Several items were seized in the search warrant that contained evidence in the case, according to the sheriff’s department.

Johnson is currently being held in the Knox County Jail while he waits for a bond hearing.
