    A man from western Illinois who police said sent naked photos of himself to an underage girl faces felony child pornography charges.

    Brian C. Dyke, 26, was arrested Tuesday and is now being held in the in the DuPage County jail on $350,000 bond.

    The Fulton man is charged with two counts of child pornography, two counts of grooming and one count of solicitation to meet a child for an unlawful purpose.

    Authorities said Dyke met the child online and began "sexting" with her. Police said the "sexting" included Dyke sending nude photos of himself. The girl's specific age was not released.

    Naperville Police Sgt. Gregg Bell told TribLocal Naperville that the girl's parents found the photos earlier this year and reported them to police.

    A search warrant was executed on Dyke's home where police said they found approximately 20 inappropriate photos. The pictures showed two different victims, though police are unclear if either of the girls in the pictures were the child with whom Dyke was allegedly sexting.

    He's due in court on June 7.
