(KMOV) --- A St. Clair County man was arrested on child pornography charges Thursday, part of a crackdown on Illinois' most active traffickers.

Sidney Davis, 37, was arrested at his home in Shiloh, Ill. and charged with five counts of aggravated possession of child pornography. He is the 29th person arrested in Operation Glass House, an initiative by Attorney General Lisa Madigan to catch Illinois' worst child pornographers.

Shiloh police said they do not believe any area children were involved in Davis' case.

Investigators track child pornographers online using the unique Internet protocol (IP) addresses assigned to each computer. According to the attorney general's office, investigators have observed 3,200 Illinois IP addresses trading child pornography images in the past 120 days.

Each of Davis' charges carries a three- to seven-year prison sentence. He is being held in the St. Clair County jail on $250,000 bond.
