A man was arrested earlier this week in Godfrey after he was reportedly filming kids at a local pool. 34 year old Adam B. Hill, who had no known address, was arrested at the home of a friend on Monday afternoon following a complaint by someone at a private swim club on Greenwood Lane.
Madison County Sheriff's Deputies spoke to the complainant who said a suspicious person was seen driving slowly past the swim club with what appeared to be a video camera and was filming children. Police received a vehicle description and registration that returned to Hill. During the investigation, Hill was located at the home of a friend in the 6000 block of Prairie Street and voluntarily turned over his camera to police. Authorities searched his car and found a cannabis pipe and he was taken into custody. Deputies also seized a computer during the investigation and detectives later allegedly found images of child pornography. Police say the images appear to have been downloaded and were not of any local kids. Hill is being held in the Madison County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bond on five counts of child pornography.
