College police Chief Pete Comanda said another student Friday found a flash drive in one of the computers at the lab and gave it to a lab assistant, who looked on the drive to see if he could find its owner.

The assistant found photos of girls “who appear to be under 13 years old engaged in sexual activity,” Comanda said, interspersed with homework and papers with Price’s name on them.

The worker turned over the drive to city police, who arrested Price and seized computers and flash drives from his apartment.

All of the equipment has been turned over to the Will County high-tech crime unit to be analyzed.
