A student at the Society of the Divine Word, a Catholic missionary organization in Techny, was charged Friday with having 300 images of child pornography on his computer and posting 30 of them on the Internet, prosecutors said.

Kevin Phan, 30, of the 1900 block of Waukegan Road, Techny, is accused of posting images on a Web site that someone reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Alexandria, Va. That group traced the images and found they had been posted from a computer in Epworth, Iowa, where Phan had attended Divine Word College.

Police in Epworth traced the images to Phan and notified Northbrook police.
