    A Wisconsin woman and Waukegan man are charged in connection with the incident.

    Police say the child porn was discovered among several computer memory devices found in Lundt's home during an April 8 search, but the child porn was not captured on the cameras at the Pleasant Prairie fitness facility.

    Illinois authorities have issued a criminal warrant for Landt for Possession of Child Pornography. He is currently in custody.

    Police say Wenckebach has confessed to placing the cameras inside the facility.

    Investigators say three of the images found on the hidden camera files appear to be juvenile females.
