A report from the file hosting company Dropbox to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in February of 2021 led to an investigation which ended with the arrests of two Roanoke Rapids men on multiple child pornography charges last week.

A search warrant filed in the case of Ian Bundy and Eddie Martin by Captain Jamie Hardy of the Roanoke Rapids Police Department shows that NCMEC received the report from Dropbox on February, 7 2021.

The report said that a user uploaded image files which depicted the sexual exploitation of minor children.

Dropbox also provided the IP address with dates and times that the files were uploaded.

The NCMEC then provided the information to the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and Charter Communications, which is branded as Spectrum, identified the account holder as Bundy, 30.

Hardy reviewed 65 image files and observed they depicted minor male children nude or engaged in sexual acts.

The children in the files appeared to be between ages of 8 and 10, 8 and 12 and 13.

A flash drive seized contained pornographic material and a sex toy molded in the shape of a young buttocks was also seized.

Several computers, iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and other electronic equipment were also seized from the men’s residence on Julian R. Allsbrook Highway.

Both Martin, 48, and Bundy remain in the Halifax County Detention Center, each under $100,000 secured bonds. 

They are scheduled for Thursday Halifax County District Court dates.

In total the men face 83 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of minors.
