Source: Plainfield man uses video games to lure boys online

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A Plainfield man is facing several counts of aggravated child pornography. Kevin Ullery was booked Friday afternoon on the felony charges.

More than 90% of children across the country play video games and a police source tells Fox 32 News that's what 32 year old Kevin Ullery used to lure boys online.

Fox 32 News has learned Ullery met five boys ages 13-16 while playing X-Box Live - an online multiplayer gaming platform. He was booked at the Will County Adult Detention Facility Friday afternoon after investigators allegedly found child pornography.

A police source tells us Ullery worked at the Geek Squad inside this Bolingbrook Best Buy.

"There are all sorts of risks out in the world and I think we just have to try to do our best to educate our children," said Anthony Hirschel.

"You don't want to scare them or have them terrified and not be able to be functional in public but you just have to educate them and let them know that not everyone is interested in their best interest," said Tonya Seals.

It remains unclear what detectives found when they arrived at Ullery's Plainfield home but police may have found pictures, video or even writings depicting sexual explicit details involving a minor, leading to Ullery's six counts of aggravated child pornography.

"We saw the sheriff's car out as I was waiting for the school bus but then I went to work... I didn't know what it was there for and I thought it was a strange place to park a sheriff's car, other than that I didn't know why they were there," said Marilyn Glatt, Ullery's neighbor.

There was no answer at the Plainfield home or phone number listed for the Ullery family, including Kevin Ullery who remains behind bars on 3-million dollars bond. Best Buy did not return calls or an email seeking comment.
