Daniel P. Caplan faces three child endangerment counts, including a second-degree charge covering distribution, and two for possession, of pornographic material, according to the office of Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi.

Caplan is being held in the Burliington County Jail on $250,000 full bail while his case is submitted to a grand jury. If he meets the bail requirement for release, Caplan is ordered to avoid the Internet and avoid contact with minors.

The NCMEC cyber tip referred to the sharing of a pornographic video through a web cam streaming system. Investigators who searched Caplan's house Thursday said they seized a laptop containing numerous compromising stills and videos of children.

The Burlington Prosecutor's High-Tech Crimes unit conducted the investigation. The warrant was served with intervention by Mount Laurel police and the New Jersey State Police.
