PEORIA, Ill. (WGEM) -

A Macomb man is now in federal custody after an investigation uncovered hundreds of child pornography videos in his possession.

Travis L. Kurrle, 36, has been charged in a criminal complaint for knowingly downloading child pornography.

According an affidavit filed in the Central Illinois U.S. District Court, authorities searched his home on 637 Randolph Street in Sept. 2011 and seized computers, phones, DVD's and tapes.

Kurrle was reportedly found to have approximately 254 child pornography videos.

Kurrle is currently in U.S. Marshall custody and is expected to appear in front of a federal grand jury later this month.
