ANCHORAGE - A substitute teacher at an Anchorage elementary school has been charged with possession of child pornography.

Police say 32-year-old Eric Hafen was arrested Saturday.

Acting on a tip, police obtained a search warrant for his home. They say they found numerous images of child sexual exploitation involving children as young as 7 or 8 on Hafen's laptop computer.

The investigation is continuing, including determining whether local children are among those in the images.

Hafen also is employed at Government Hill Elementary by Campfire, an organization that provides after-school programs.
