PHOENIX (AP) -- A former Phoenix police sergeant accused in a child pornography case has pleaded not guilty.
 
Maricopa County prosecutors say 61-year-old Robert Carrillo entered his plea Monday. His next court date is set for Oct. 29.
 
Carrillo was arrested Aug. 29 at his Chandler home on suspicion of 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.
 
Investigators say they found as many as 8,000 sexually inappropriate images of underage girls on a computer flash drive inside Carrillo'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.
