On a tip from investigators in Wyoming, Anchorage police arrested 21-year-old Jonathan Camacho on Thursday.
Camacho, a specialist in the radiology unit for the 3rd Medical Group at Elmendorf, is charged with possessing and distributing child pornography, with bail set at $15,000.
Police said the children in the images are young adolescents and clearly underage.
"This is prepubescent children. This is not your 16-year-old that looks 18 or 25," Anchorage police spokeswoman Anita Shell said.
Anchorage police have a new five-person Cyber Investigations Unit, which includes two detectives who focus on crimes against children, said Lt. Dave Parker of the Anchorage Police Department.
