DURHAM, N.C. — A Durham man was charged Tuesday with 200 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, police said.

Bruce Edward Eckard, 63, of Wildwood Drive, faces 100 counts each of second-degree and third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. He was being held in Durham County Jail under a $1 million bond.

Investigators served a search warrant at Eckard’s home last month after receiving a tip, and they confiscated computer equipment and computer hard drives, police said.
