An undercover investigation has resulted in the arrest of one suspect for the indecent solicitation of a child. Wheaton Police Department detectives with assistance from the Illinois Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force developed sufficient probable cause to obtain an arrest warrant for the arrest of Nicholas F. Marcogliese, male, 32 years of age, of Chestnut Street, Kincaid, Illinois.
The warrant was issued in DuPage County on July 12th for one count of indecent solicitation of a child, one count of solicitation to meet a child, one count of attempted aggravated criminal sexual abuse, one count of travelling to meet a minor, and one count of grooming.
On July 13, Wheaton detectives attempted to serve the warrant in Kincaid, IL. Detectives were not able to locate Marcogliese on July 13th. The U. S. Marshal’s Office, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Christian County Sheriff’s Office assisted Wheaton detectives in the search for Marcogliese.
On July 15th, the Christian County Sheriff’s Office located Marcogliese and held him at the Christian County Jail. Marcogliese was brought to DuPage County Jail by Wheaton detectives on July 18th. Marcogliese was booked at the DuPage County Jail, where he remains. Bond was set at $250,000.
No additional details are available for release as prosecution is pending.
