"Hundreds of videos and pictures were discovered that contained sexual conduct involving minors," police said.

He was ordered held at the Kane County Adult Justice Center on a $200,000 bond, police said.

On March 10, prosecutors alleged that Zaca was one of four men who traveled to a location in Aurora expecting to have a sexual encounter with minors, the Kane County state's attorney's office said at the time.

Also arrested were Jarrett O. Ferguson, 25, of Wheaton; Ramesh Gannamani, 36, of Des Plaines; and Olatokunbo Olawoye, 44, of Aurora. Homeland Security Investigations and Aurora police conducted the investigation.

All four men were charged with felony counts of involuntary sexual servitude of a minor, traveling to meet a minor and grooming, prosecutors said at the time.

Zaca is due back in court on Friday, according to the Kane County sheriff's office.
