ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - A 61-year-old man turned himself in to Rockford police on Tuesday for child solicitation charges.

An arrest warrant was issued for Michael McLaren, of Rockford, after a Nov. 2022 report to police about a man having inappropriate contact over the internet with someone he believed to be a 14-year-old.

McLaren is being held in the Winnebago County jail on a $10,000 bond.

He’s due in Winnebago County court on April 6.
