ST. CHARLES – A Darien man has been charged with multiple felony counts of possession of child pornography after images were found on a computer memory card at the St. Charles business where he worked.

Richard A. Kusnierz, 58, of the 100 block of Janet Ave., was released Tuesday afternoon from the Kane County Jail after being taken into custody on Monday. His bail was set at $35,000.

On Nov. 25, St. Charles police officers responded to a business in the 3800 block of Ohio Ave for a report of a discovery of child pornography on a SD card that had been found on the floor inside the business, according to a news release from the St. Charles Police Department.

St. Charles police officers and detectives began an investigation to obtain any information related to the owner of the SD card, which was discovered along with a group of other SD cards, the release stated. Through that investigation, content was discovered that linked Kusnierz to the cards, according to the release.

His next court date is set for Friday.
