Troy, Illinois (KMOV.com) – A tip from a national watch group and quick action by local investigators ends with the arrest of a Metro East man on child pornography charges.

Tyler Bergland, 28, was arrested following an early morning search of his home.

Police got a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that an internet user downloaded illegal pornographic images from a social networking website.

Troy police tracked those images back to a residence at 206 Avalon. Investigators say a search of the home turned up evidence of child pornography that was linked back to the suspect.

Bergland was arrested, charged, locked up in the Madison County Jail with bond set at $100,000.
