FAIRBANKS - A 22-year-old Fort Wainwright soldier was charged with 90 counts of possessing child pornography.

Pfc. Arthur Jaster, of Ambrose, N.D., also faces one count of child pornography distribution, according to an indictment. He is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday.

Jaster had six videos featuring multiple children involved in various sex acts, according to court records. Some of the sex acts involved adults.

Jaster has been stationed at the Army post since last year and belongs to the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, a Fort Wainwright spokeswoman said.

Fairbanks police began investigating in February after a tip from detectives in the cybercrimes unit at the Anchorage Police Department.
