ANCHORAGE - An Anchorage grand jury has indicted a 30-year-old man on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.
Romeo Nathaniel Wilson is charged with 71 counts of possession and four counts of distribution.
Anchorage police received a tip and began investigating in March, serving a search warrant on Anchorage Internet service providers to identify a suspect.
A search warrant was served on Wilson's home and investigators seized computers and digital storage devices.
Police say they found almost 500 images and videos of child sexual exploitation.
The child victims in the images ranged in age from under 2 to about 16 years old. Police said the children were molested by adult males and females.
Wilson was arrested April 10.
