PHOENIX (AP) -- Bond is set at $100,000 for a former Phoenix police sergeant accused in a child pornography case.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 61-year-old Robert Carrillo had his initial court appearance Tuesday.

He was arrested Aug. 29 at his Chandler home on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Carrillo doesn't have an attorney yet.

Investigators say they found as many as 8,000 sexually inappropriate images of underage girls on a computer flash drive inside Carillo's house.

Authorities say some of the images are of girls as young as age 2.

Phoenix police say Carrillo retired this spring after 37 years with the department - many of those spent in the property crimes division.
