The departments received a complaint from a concerned citizen stating that they had seen inappropriate pictures of juveniles on Eckrich's personal computer.
The detectives began an investigation on this case and were able to obtain a search warrant issued out of the Clay Circuit Court.
"They found material that was deemed inappropriate of young juveniles," Sheriff Mike Heaton said.
After executing the search warrant, Eckrich was arrested on the charge of Child Exploitation and Possession of Child Pornography. He is now being detained in the Clay County Justice Center with $7,000 bail, 10 percent allowed.
The case is still under investigation and Eckrich could face more charges.
"We worked together on the issue," Heaton said. "It was a joint effort between The Brazil City Police Department and the Sheriff's Department."
