FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A Fargo man is being held on a $1 million bond after being charged with sharing and producing child pornography.

Lt. Joel Vettel says police arrested Duane Barth II on Thursday afternoon. Barth faces 23 charges including gross sexual imposition, promotion of sexual performance by a minor and possession of child porn.

Vettel says police executed a search warrant based on information from the Homeland Security Department. They say they found images of child porn involving a child under the age of 5.

Vettel told KFGO-AM the case was “shocking and horrific” because of the victim’s age and the nature of the alleged crimes.

An attorney was not listed for Barth on Saturday morning. He is being held in the Cass County Jail.
